Contemporary Chinese Poetry London, UK 16th April 2012

Jade Ladder is a new anthology of Chinese poetry and its diversity as it renegotiates its relationship with Western modernist and postmodernist poetry, and re-engages with its Classical heritage. Misty, post-Misty, Fourth Generation; publication in samizdat, publication in exile, publication on the internet – in a nation of billions, it sometimes seems that there are a million ways to write poetry.
