The Thunder of Deep Thought: House of the Sun Notebooks, Number Two (Paperback)
The Thunder of Deep Thought is the second volume of Huang Xiang's House of the Sun Notebooks. This collection includes the first publication of the author's poetics, literary theory, and poetic philosophy.
Huang Xiang is considered the pre-eminent poet of post-Cultural Revolution China. His work was banned for most of his life, and it didn't gain recognition until the beginning of this century, with the publication in New York, Hong Kong, and Taiwan of his poetry anthologies. The English translation of A Lifetime is a Promise to Keep: Poems of Huang Xiang was commissioned by City of Asylum and published by the University of California Press in 2008.
