The redshifting web : poems 1970-1998 by Arthur Sze( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Redshifting Web spans more than a quarter-century of published work and makes available for the first time the full range of Sze's poetry. It includes selections from five previous books as well as a generous selection of new poems. --Copper Canyon Press. Sze is the kind of poet I have hoped for all my life: he possesses the gravity of the great Chinese poets of the T'ang, the levity of a Japanese Zen master, along with a voice that is wholly contemporary. He is a master of description of the natural world. With typical modesty, he can refer to his many travels and his absorption of many cultures in a totally unaffected way. This book is a landmark and a signpost. --Carolyn Kizer. Sze composes an elegant, quietly intense, very human, beautiful poetry, one that is remarkable for its commitment to metaphor and musical language. I consider him to be one of the foremost poets of his generation. He is wise, intelligent, a joy to be with and to read. --Quincy Troupe
The silk dragon : translations from the Chinese by Arthur Sze( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Silk Dragon presents the vitality, diversity, and power of the Chinese poetic tradition, ranging from such Tang dynasty masters as Wang Wei, Li Po, and Tu Fu to contemporary poets Wen I-to and Yen Chen. Although Sze calls translation an "impossible task," his introduction nevertheless provides a unique glimpse into exactly how he translates a poem - from the first rough, literal draft to the finished poem."--Jacket

A child playing a game, tea leaves resting in a bowl, an abandoned dog, a foot sticking out from a funeral pyre, an Afghan farmer pausing as mortars fire at the enemy: in Arthur Sze's tenth book, the world spins on many points of reference, unfolding with full sensuous detail
Quipu by Arthur Sze( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sze's poems, long admired for fusing science, history, philosophy, and anthropology, are full of imaginative rigor and urgency; they make us envision the marvels and terrors of our contemporary world. His lines and rhythms are taut, sensuous, and mesmerizing; nouns become verbs - "where is a passion that orchids the body?"--And what appears solid and stable may actually be fluid, volatile. Arthur Sze harnesses the precarious, charged particulars of our lives and, through his luminous language, makes enduring and breathtaking poetry."--Jacket

An archaeology of architecture : photowriting the built environment by Dennis Tedlock( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work combines photography of both commercial and vernacular architecture around the world in a series of short essays examining what structures can reveal about their pasts and the present. The author's contribution as photographer/ethnographer provides a unique anthropological perspective to the observation that all buildings reflect a story that leads from construction through occupation to abandonment"--
