"Called by Jerome Rothenberg "The linking figure between American modernism (in-the-line-of-Pound) and Chinese traditions and practices", Wai-Lim Yip has been active as a bicultural poet, translator, critic and theorist between Taiwan and America for over 30 years. Prof. Wai-Lim Yip has been with UCSD since 1967, and has played a central role in the Comparative Literature Section as well as in the Program of Chinese Studies. He has written more than 40 books in two languages. This book is the first translated into French." (back cover) A trilingual collection of poems by Wai-Lim Yip, the acclaimed & prolific Chinese poet & educator who for many years was on the faculty of the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). The poems are presented in Chinese, English & French on successive pages, with reproductions of illustrations by Yip preceding each poem. Following the poems is a "Bio-Bibliographical Summary" of Yip (uncredited), first in English & then French. The French-language versions are translated by Pierre Courtland, & we believe that both the Chinese & English-language versions are by Yip himself.
