Abstract:

"Regarded as China's finest contemporary poet, Gu Cheng (1956-1993) has captivated and enthralled readers world wide, spanning many generations. While critics called him the harbinger of a troubled and new Obscure movement, a generation who had come of age during the Cultural Revolution were taking his poems to heart."

"Nameless Flowers: Selected Poems of Gu Cheng traces the poetry of Gu Cheng from the lurid early lyrics that made him a literary star to the late expressions of dark beauty that predicted his second exile and tragic death. Though rooted in classical Chinese, particularly the Taoism of Chuang Tzu, Gu Cheng's poems show traces of western influences as diverse as Whitman, Lorca, and entomologist Jean Henri Fabre. His poems embrace animate and inanimate beings from the vast Chinese masses and Mongolian plains down to insects and pebbles."--Jacket.
