Please visit http://modernchinesepoetry.com/ for sample poems. This book is a special issue of the journal of 21st Century Chinese Poetry, containing 25 poems of Zhang Fanxiu. All poems are selected by Meifu Wang and translated by the editor-and-translator team of the journal. Mr. Zhang Fanxiu was born in 1958 in Hebei Province, and has been a farmer since graduating from high school in 1975. He published his first poem at 17, but stopped writing between 1988 and 2005. He said:" Poetry has a great appetite and consumes a lot of food. She needs regular feeding, one meal after another, one drink after another. In 1987, my second son was born; that's another mouth to feed, and our livelihood went from difficult to fighting for survival. Poetry deserved my love, my sons deserved my love, my wife deserved my love, but in 1988 I decided I must give up poetry and put all of my energy in nourishing the family... Only in 2005 was I able to return to poetry again." (Epilogue, Only the Earth) In 2007, Zhang Fanxiu moved to the remote western region of Liaoning Province, and has since produced hundreds of poems that reveal his unique insight into nature, the land and rural life. His work can be seen in various major literary journals in China. He has also published three collections of poems: Writings from the Moors, The Spirit of the Earth, and Only the Earth.
