summary
Song Lin’s poems explore his sojourns in several countries, the natural world, and his own inner landscape. His early imprisonment during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests gave rise to the title poem, as well as a profound sense of yearning that pervades much of his work. While his work is rooted in both contemporary and classical Chinese poetry, he incorporates into his poems American, French, and Latin-American literary traditions.
