Another Kind of Nation: An Anthology of Contemporary Chinese Poetry Reviews

    This is an important collection by a deeply underrated (here in America) poet, just now finally getting the attention of the various cliques that make up what is often called the western experimental poetry "community." Zhang Er has brought a slice of contemporary Chinese poetry and poetics into the hands of western poets, such as myself, who struggle with the incredible distances between cultures. The notes on work by the poets, and Zhang Er's added walk-through on the diverse poetries emerging from China, the experimentation of a younger generation born, in part, of globalization, etc., is extremely inviting to the relative novice, and the poems themselves are often what? A diversity here. Some works are more engaging than others, certainly, and yet that should not be surprising, nor do I think it detracts from the project itself. I use this work as companion in my experiments in text / poetry & poetics class room.
