Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0856462594, Paperback)This work is a Poetry Book Society recommended translation. "Forms of Distance" is Bei Dao's second bilingual collection since his enforced exile from China in 1989. Michael Hofmann described the first, "Old Snow", as 'the work of one of the great poets of our time', and John Cayley wrote in the "Times Literary Supplement" that 'in a sense he is the only contemporary Chinese poet who is knowable for the non-specialist...we can hear the maturing poetic voice of a highly talented, individual Chinese writer.'

A bilingual collection of poems by a Chinese dissident. "The world's agents of freedom / entered me into their computer / an alien voice sneaking into the dictionary / a dissident / perhaps a form of distance from the world." By the author of Old Snow.
