9789627255147: Selected Poems (Renditions paperbacks) (v. 2)

China's leading woman poet, Shu Ting worked in the Countryside until 1973, returning to the city to work on construction sites and in factories. In spite of all this, her firm faith in the human spirit led to poetry. Her pure style and mature voice found a ready voice found a ready response among a generation shaped by the experiences of the Cultural Revolution. The poems included in this first collection of Shu Ting's work in English span her career, amply demonstrating her poetic gifts.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

. . .In between

Its just a common lane

On a low wall there may be specks

That may grow in time into a charcoal drawing

perhaps it's a gust of wind

or perhaps a kind of smell

bewilderment sprouts rootlessly


the mind is a compass without direction

it seems that you have stepped

right into a magnetic field


then you keep trying to recall

you must have missed something

what is it that has awaited you for years what is it that you've

been waiting for

even if you follow your own footprints

you will not return

to where you started.
