    City of Eternal Spring
    Book Description:

    This is the final book in the Plum Flower Trilogy by Afaa Michael Weaver, published by the University of Pittsburgh Press. The two earlier books,The Plum Flower Dance: Poems 1985 to 2005andThe Government of Nature,reveal similar themes that address the author's personal experience with childhood abuse through the context of Daoist renderings of nature as a metaphor for the human body, with an eye to recovery and forgiveness in a very eclectic spiritual life.City of Eternal Springchronicles Weaver's travels abroad in Taiwan and China, as well as showing the limits of cultural influence.
