Author: Su Shi
Translator: Jeffrey Yang
Publisher: Ugly Duckling Presse (2008)
A Daoist-Confucian-Buddhist spirit flows through these poems like a sparkling spring of thought-words, firmly rooted to earth and field. This bilingual edition of East Slope is threaded together with photographic images and includes an informative afterword by the translator, Jeffrey Yang.
"Yang's Su Shi poems are fabulous; his typographically four-square form is a real innovation. I love the way the rhythmic rests and line-breaks furrow these small plots of arable poetry."
