Description

Freedom is a collection of 60 poems by Wang Yin, one of the most incisive and observant voices in modern Chinese poetry. Focusing on music, nightlife, and the culture of contemporary China, Wang Yin’s wit and humor offer an original perspective on modern society.

Freedom is the English-language poetry debut of Wang Yin. This bilingual volume includes poems in both English and Chinese, translated and compiled by Chinese poet Xi Nan and featuring a introduction by her. Freedom also includes several poems published by Terror House Magazine in 2020.

“These poems are expressive of a life, a modern life, from a point of view that is both familiar to global readers and specific to unique aspects of the author’s culture. There’s a precision of perception, of moments chosen for illumination—unusual perceptions, such as the specificity of a cicada chorus or noticing only fallen blossoms. The reader becomes fully in the moment of the poem and thus gets to experience life from another point of view.” — Su Zi, editor of Red Mare

《自由》是王音的60首诗选集,他是现代中国诗界最敏锐且具有观察力的声音之一;关注音乐、夜生活,和当代中国文化,王音的机智和幽默提供了观察现代社会的一个独创性视角。

《自由》也是王音的处女英语诗集。这本双语诗集包括了英、中双语的诗歌,由中国诗人西楠翻译至英语和编纂,并由她作了译者序。《自由》一书中还包括了Terror House杂志于2020年发表的几首王音的诗。

“这些诗表达了一种生活,一种现代生活,它既为全世界的读者所可感,又有着作者的独特文化因素。对于作者选择表达的时刻,他的感知很精确——是一种不寻常的感知,例如他写道蝉鸣的合唱、或是仅注意到落英……使读者完全进入了诗歌的瞬间,并得以从另一个角度体验生活”。——苏茜,《红色的母马》系列 编辑
