Mirror (Jintian) free pdf This posthumous collection is a detailed, retrospective look at one of the more brilliant poetic minds of the twenty-first century, and includes an introduction by Bai Hua and afterword by Bei Dao. A dark humor vivifies Zhang Zao's later work as he eroticizes the harrowing: doubt, finality, and then nothingness. The choice of these poems is retrospective: "Mirror," one of his earliest and best known works starts the collection, while "Lantern Town" was written less than two months before his death.Elegy"a letter opens and someone saysit's getting coldanother letter opensit is empty, emptyyet heavier than the worlda letter openssomeone says he is singing from a mountain heightsomeone says" no, even if the potato was deadthe inertia alive in itwould still grow tiny hands"another letter opensyou sleep like a tangerinebut after peeling off your nudity someone sayshe has touched another youanother letter opensthey are all laughingeverything around explodes into laughtera letter opensclouds and water run wild outsidea letter opensI am chewing a certain darknessanother letter openshigh moon in the skyanother letter opens and shouts"death is something realTranslator Fiona Sze-Lorrain co-edited the Manoa anthologies, "Sky Lanterns" (2012) and "On Freedom: Spirit, Art, and State" (2013), and is the translator of three previous Jintian titles, including Lan Lan's "Canyon in the Body" and "Wind Says" by Bai Hua.

About Zhang Zao

Zhang Zao: Began writing in the early 1980s, inspired by the so-called obscure ("Misty") poets who emerged after the death of Mao Zedong in 1976, but determined to go beyond these writers in terms of his experimentation with language. He eventually developed a style that blended Eastern and Western influences. He moved to German in 1986 where he worked as a recognized literary critic, translator and scholar of German literature and philosophy. He died in 2010 at the age of 48. Fiona Sze-Lorrain: Writes and translates in French, English, and Chinese. Her recent work includes "My Funeral Gondola" (published as a Manoa Books title from El Leon Literary Arts in 2013), and "Water the Moon" (Marick Press, 2010). Co-director of Vif editions and one of the editors at Cerise Press, she is also a zheng concertist. Her translation of "I Could Almost See the Clouds of Dust," by Yu Xiang (Zephyr 2013) was long-listed for the 2013 PEN Poetry in Translation Award. She has translated two other Zephyr titles: "Canyon in the Body," by Lan Lan, and "Wind Says," by Bai Hua. Bei Dao: Bei Dao is considered one of China's most important writers. He is the most notable member of the "Misty Poets" and co-founded and co-edited "Jintian" ("Today") magazine. His work has been translated into more than 30 languages. Bai Hua: The central figure of the post-"Misty" poets, Bai Hua is one of the most influential of contemporary Chinese poets. His book "Wind Says," translated by Fiona Sze-Lorrain, was published by Zephyr in 2012."
