Often reported to be on the shortlist for the Nobel Prize for Literature, and recently elected an honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Bei Dao is China's pre-eminent contemporary poet. The poems in "Landscape Over Zero" reach new heights of cinematic fusion as he contemplates the fractured landscapes amongst which he has lived since his enforced exile from China in 1989. But now there is a glimmer of possibility that a new home can be gained and love renewed.
Bei Dao was born in 1949, and was first nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1993. His other collections in English and published by Anvil are 'The August Sleepwalker' (1988), 'Old Snow' (1992) and 'Forms of Distance' (1994).David Hinton studied Chinese at Cornell University. As well as two of Bei Dao's Anvil collections, he has translated 'The Selected Poems of Tu Fu' (1990) and 'The Selected Poems of Li Po' (1998), both also published by Anvil. He lives in Vermont.
