5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading, 16 May 2012
This review is from: Jade Ladder: Contemporary Chinese Poetry (Paperback)
British poetry fans read shamefully little from abroad. Despite the importance of China in the 21st century, most readers would struggle to name a single Chinese writer. This important book attempts to redress this problem. It comes with a wonderful introduction and lots of useful essays. Of the poets, I particularly love Qin Xiaoyu, Han Bo's 'People's Park' ('Our people. Why do you / hang the sunset into / the birdcage of the park?') and Bai Hua. But I'm only just starting to dip into this thick (300+ pages) book, which is great value for money. Wish I'd had it when I went travelling round China...
