The Rose of Time : New & Selected Poems Paperback
by Bei Dao
Edited by Eliot Weinberger
"The Rose of Time: New & Selected Poems" presents a glowing selection of poetry by contemporary China's most celebrated poet, Bei Dao.
From his earliest work, Bei Dao developed a wholly original poetic language composed of mysterious and arresting images tuned to a distinctive musical key.
This collection spans Bei Dao's entire writing life, from his first book to appear in English, "The August Sleepwalker", published a year after the Tiananmen tragedy, to the increasingly interior and complex poems of "Landscape Over Zero" and "Unlock", to new never-before-published work.
This bilingual edition also includes a prefatory note by the poet, and a brief afterword by the editor Eliot Weinberger.
This is a must-read book from a seminal poet who has been translated into over thirty languages.
