Summary

Combining Chinese classicism with modern ideas, Buddhist concepts, and metaphors with subjects associated with the Taiwanese claim to their native soil, Hsu is one of the most noted of contemporary Taiwan writers. This book of poetry, his first collection in English, reveals the effectiveness of his work. Hsu Hui-chi was born in Taoyuan, Taiwan in 1966. To date he has published five collections of poetry, among them Sunlight Beehive, A Formosan Clan and Longing for the Ocean. He has won numerous awards and prizes and is chief editor of the Literary Supplement to The Liberty Times in Taiwan.
