Back in the 8th century CE, the famous Chinese poet Li Bai (or Li Po) stated that it was “the Great Lump” – Earth itself and the beauty of its landscape – that lends a person their ability to write. In this volume, Western Washington’s Professor of English, Ning YU, seeks Nature while translating 311 pieces from China’s great age of poetry, the Tang (618-907).
 
Born and raised in China, Ning YU took his BA at Beijing University, before coming to the US where he took a Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut in nineteenth-century American literature with a focus on Thoreau, American nature writing, and ecocriticism. Retaining his interest in and affection for the poetry of China, he has also produced for that field several studies and translations.
