Beschreibung"For three decades now, Wai-lim Yip has been a linking figure between American modernism (in-the-line-of-Pound) and Chinese traditions and practices form which that modernism has long drawn. His two classic American works--in the lovely way that classic, as a word and concept, can still resonate in Chinese context--are his Pound's Cathay and Chinese Poetry."--Jerome Rothenberg, from the introduction to "Between Landscapes: Poems by Wai-lim Yip"

Pressestimmen"Yip, himself a poet, captures the rhythm of Chinese nature poetry in his characteristically punctuated and contracted imagery. The inclusion of the word-for-word annotations is a feature that distinguishes the book from most anthologies of Chinese poetry in translation." - Jing Wang, author of The Story of Stone "For three decades now, Wai-lim Yip has been a linking figure between American modernism (in-the-line-of-Pound) and Chinese traditions and practices form which that modernism has long drawn.
