Saclaco Enomoto

Author, Japanese
Enomoto Saclaco was born in Tokyo in 1987. She is the author of three books of poetry. Saclaco is unusual in Japan’s poetry scene because of her fundamentally oppositional stance towards literature and society as a whole. This is not only due to the experimental nature of her work (a structurally and semantically dense prose poetry said to be nearly unreadable), but because of the fact that she is openly a transsexual, and is willing to speak publicly on this and other taboo subjects.
