With soaring and spiritual allegory, this collection of poems, from the uplifting imagination of one of China's brightest new stars, has been lovingly transposed into English with the same conviction and philosophy woven through the originals: That though a translation may never truly reflect the intricacies of the source, fresh perspectives and understanding can still be cast on the landscape of the boundaryless human soul by the evokation of imagery from another world. Juxtaposing the displacement and hope confronting China's post-Cultural Revolution only-child generation, these writings offer a window into an all-encompassing world of love, devotion, anger and loss, wrought by her nation's relentlessly capitalistic expansion, which marches on bereft of any "modern" western social narrative of individual freedom of thought and belief. The collection is tinctured by a selection of poems from a kindred spirit, William Blake, including his masterpiece, Auguries of Innocence, his equally allegorical critique of another changing world, translated here into Chinese for the very first time. To assist in its use as an educational tool, this bilingual format book also comes with additional online content in the form of downloadable pinyin transliteration and audio recordings in Mandarin and English
