The Rose of Time
New and Selected PoemsBook - 2009
"The Rose of Time: New & Selected Poems presents a selection of poetry by contemporary China's most celebrated poet, Bei Dao. From his earliest work, Bei Dao has developed a wholly original poetic language composed of mysterious and arresting images tuned to a distinctive musical key - a music that has continued to develop in innovative ways through the five collections of poetry published by New Directions. Selections from each of these books are included here, as well as a section of new, never-before-published work. This bilingual edition opens with a prefatory note by the poet recalling his past life as a concrete mixer and blacksmith, and closes with a brief biographical note by the editor, Eliot Weinberger. Bei Dao is a seminal poet who has been translated into some thirty languages, and his public admirers have included such international writers as Mahmoud Darwish, Susan Sontag, and Tomas Transtromer."--Jacket.
