The Chinese written character as a medium for poetry by Ernest Fenollosa( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1919 by Ezra Pound, Ernest Fenollosa's essay on the Chinese written language has become one of the most often quoted statements in the history of American poetics. As edited by Pound, it presents a powerful conception of language that continues to shape our poetic and stylistic preferences: the idea that poems consist primarily of images; the idea that the sentence form with active verb mirrors relations of natural force. But previous editions of the essay represent Pound's understanding--it is fair to say, his appropriation--of the text. Fenollosa's manuscripts, in the Beinecke Library of Yale University, allow us to see this essay in a different light, as a document of early, sustained cultural interchange between North Americaand East Asia. Pound's editing of the essay obscured two important features, here restored to view: Fenollosa's encounter with Tendai Buddhism and Buddhist ontology, and his concern with the dimension of sound in Chinese poetry. This book is the definitive critical edition of Fenollosa's important work. After a substantial Introduction, the text as edited by Pound is presented, together with his notes and plates. At the heart of the edition is the first full publication of the essay as Fenollosa wrote it, accompanied by the many diagrams, characters, and notes Fenollosa (and Pound) scrawled on the verso pages. Pound's deletions, insertions, and alterations to Fenollosa's sometimes ornate prose are meticulously captured, enabling readers to follow the quasi-dialogue between Fenollosa and his posthumous editor. Earlier drafts and related talks reveal the developmentof Fenollosa's ideas about culture, poetry, and translation. Copious multilingual annotation is an important feature of the edition. This masterfully edited book will be an essential resource for scholars and poets and a starting point for a renewed discussion of the multiple sources of American modernist poetry
Winter sun : poems by Shizhi( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shi Zhi has been a major force in Chinese poetry since 1968, when several of his poems were circulated as secret handwritten manuscripts in the midst of China's Cultural Revolution. He gave voice to the aspirations of dispirited youth, and although once relegated to obscurity, he is today celebrated as one of China's most important cultural influences, having spawned the modern Chinese poetry revolution of the 1980s. This bilingual collection of Shi Zhi's most significant poems, featuring an afterword by the poet himself, is the first book-length publication of his work in English. Masterfully
By the river : seven contemporary Chinese novellas( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novella, as the editors of this volume explain, is in many ways the "native habitat" of modern Chinese literary production--the ideal fictional form for revealing the various facets of contemporary Chinese culture. The seven novellas collected here resoundingly support their claim. Featuring works by award winners and rising stars, women and men, By the River presents a confluence of some of the most compelling voices in China today. Together, their narratives reflect the rich diversity of Chinese experience in the modern era. These novellas are stories of coming of age in the countryside, of romance in the shadow of an electrical power station or in the watery landscape of a lost love, of a daughter's epic journey to find her estranged mother. Whether telling of love or loss, of work or play along the river of experience, the narratives are replete with details that bring literary depth to the everyday--the mark of the novella. These details, the editors tell us, and the novellas into which they are woven, defy simple answers to moral and political questions about modern life, leaving readers with the feeling that their world has been made larger, that they have seen through different eyes for a moment, if not forever. Reflecting modern Chinese life in the city and in the country, and among diverse regional cultures, By the River showcases the best of contemporary Chinese long-form fiction"--

Poetics of emptiness : Transformations of East Asian philosophy and poetics in twentieth-century American poetry by Jonathan Stalling( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation explores transformations of East Asian philosophy, poetics, and aesthetics in twentieth-century American poetry. Transpacific texts like those discussed in this dissertation offer an opportunity to expand literary criticism's interpretive frames by requiring reading practices as heterocultural as the texts being read. Each chapter of this dissertation addresses the unique intertextual pathway of specific East Asian configurations of "emptiness" as they are transformed by their integration into American poetics. I explore how Ernest Fenollosa integrates late Meiji Tendai Buddhist reading of emptiness (kong) and the classical Chinese concept (wen, "pattern") to support his poetics of emptiness. I explore the didactic and soteriological function of the "emptiness" in Gary Snyder's poetry and poetics, as well as Wai-lim Yip's "language of emptiness" (wuyan) which he argues is capable of "letting the world manifest itself in poetry without 'epistemological elaborations.'" Finally, I presence the ways in which Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's novel/poem Dictee draws upon the textual tradition of Daoist (neidan, "inner alchemy"). Tracing the impact of these transpacific concepts reveals an important untold story of American poetry and poetics, and it is my hope that this dissertation provides a small chapter in this unfolding history
