Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. In this volume, readers will find many excellent translations that attempt to meet the challenging task of capturing Chinese language—ambitious, technically sound, engaging works that at once function with, transmit, deepen, and transgress the meanings of their source texts. Readers will also find equally rewarding translations that attempt to subvert this task entirely. These latter translations embed themselves in an intertextual network, serving as stabilizing nodes that relate as much to their Chinese source texts as they do to other translations and texts in English.
Urban Poetry from China translates the work of 31 poets from China, Hong Kong & Taiwan to explore the varieties of Chinese poetry focused on city life and modernity.Author City: NANJING CHI
