A comprehensive collection by one of the most intensely musical and visionary poets writing today.
Arthur Sze has rare qualifications when it comes to translating Chinese: he is an award-winning poet who was raised in both languages. A second-generation Chinese-American, Sze has gathered over 70 poems by poets who have had a profound effect on Chinese culture, American poetics and Sze's own maturation as an artist.
Sze's poetry is bold and versatile and brings together "disparate realms of experience." -The New Yorker
