Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Translated from the Chinese by Steve Bradbury. HIS DAYS GO BY THE WAY HER YEARS is a collection of Steve Bradbury's best translations of poetry by Taiwanese poet and filmmaker Ye Mimi. Mimi's poetry blends a fascination with dreams with a playful approach to language and sensitivity to sound. In his translations, Bradbury has crafted English poems that sing in their new language and deftly play with its possibilities. This book was a finalist in the Anomalous Press Experimental Translation Chapbook Contest, judged by Christian Hawkey.
