Synopsis

Jade Ladder shows authoritatively, for the first time in English, the diversity of Chinese poetry as it renegotiates its relationship with Western modernist and postmodernist poetry, and re-engages with its Classical heritage. It is the most comprehensive single volume guide to what has been happening and what is happening now in a culture of undeniably global significance. It is indispensable reading for anyone with an interest in the future not just of China, but of poetry. ""This fascinating gathering of new and old voices is sure to please not only fans of Chinese culture but all who appreciate great poetry.""--World Lit. Today February 2014
