Push Open the Window
Contemporary Poetry from China

 Forty-nine of China’s finest poets born after 1945 are collected in this comprehensive bilingual anthology, which offers a glimpse into the contemporary world of China’s great poetic tradition. The poems selected by award-winning poet Qingping Wang range from the mystical darkness of Zhai Yongming to the urbanist work of Huang Fan, from the compassion and personal intimacy of Wang Xiano to the philosophical prose poems of Xi Chuan. Translated by more than forty translators from all over the world, Push Open the Window: Contemporary Poetry From China makes available to a new audience many poems which had not previously been translated into English.

For Push Open the Window,

“The poets included in this anthology have worked in factories, in editorial houses, on farms, in universities…Almost all of them steeped themselves in translations of poetry from abroad; some translate or edit or write criticism. Drawing from fresh sources, from a sense of their place in an international community, they are making Chinese poetry new. And, happily for those of us who don’t read Chinese, Copper Canyon is making that body of work available to English-language readers. Here is a thrilling slice of Chinese poetry in the Age of Globalization. Open wide.”Forrest Gander, from the Foreword
