Bian Zhilin (1910-2000), one of the most original voices in 20th-century Chinese poetry, was known for his modern sensibility and intense lyrical appeal. His style combines the techniques of French Symbolist poets Baudelaire, Verlaine, Mallarm? and Val?ry and English language poets T.S. Eliot and W.H. Auden on the one hand, and the best of Chinese poetic tradition on the other. His lifelong experimentation with the poetic form and his theoretical explorations conbributed significantly toward the formal development of vernacular poetry. The present unique collection, comprising almost Bian's entire corpus, gives full play to his delicate craftsmanship.

Mary M. Y. Fung, the editor and translator, lectured on translation and modern Chinese literature at the University of Hong Kong for over thirty years.

David Lunde, the co-translator, directed the creative writing programme at the State University of New York College at Fredonia for thirty-four years.
