Hồ Xuân Hương (胡春香; 1772 to 1822) erotic poem Jackfruit

My body is like the jackfruit,
Its skin prickly, its meat thick.
If you want to taste it, then drive in your stake,
Don't fondle the surface, or sap will stain your hand.
(“The Jackfruit”)

Hồ Xuân Hương (胡春香; 1772 to 1822) was a Vietnamese poet born at the end of the Lê dynasty. She grew up in an era of political and social turmoil – the time of the Tây Sơn rebellion and a three-decade civil war that led to Nguyễn Ánh seizing power as Emperor Gia Long and starting the Nguyễn dynasty. She wrote poetry using chữ nôm (Southern Script), which adapts Chinese characters for writing demotic Vietnamese. She is considered to be one of Vietnam's greatest classical poets. Xuân Diệu, a prominent modern poet, dubbed her “The Queen of Nôm poetry”.[citation needed]
