ebook È We Grow Old ç Yu-Han Chao

Al nightmares Her work flows from a mix of traditional Chinese culture contemporary Taiwan and post modern Am Wow My first 1 star reviewLet me start by saying that I really enjoy Chinese poetry in general I lived in Beijing for a while and my fiance lived in Shanghai for 2 years she's fluent in Mandarin We have calligraphy art of Chinese poetry on our walls This isn't to say I'm an expert at all the art was hers and she knows much about it than I but I do really really enjoy it It was one of the primary reasons I loved The Story of the Stone one of the volumes was almost entirely poetryWe're getting married in a few weeks and wanted a Chinese love poem read in translation I saw this book on with it's glowing reviews and bought it immediately excited to find many gems from which to chooseHowever instead of the style of poetry I'm accustomed to this book is simply a collection of single paragraph whimsical thoughts It's as if the author wrote down every random thought that went through her mind for a month including recollection of the past and collected them into paragraphs And not very interesting paragraphs at thatI believe there is a kernel of something here that could become wonderful but it needs curation and work Most authors would consider this collection the ideas that they're scribbling down to then process and marinated on and turn into something Perhaps the rawness of the memories and thoughts is the purpose and this is completely intentional but if that's the case then at the very least it's not my style Given the other great reviews perhaps it's a matter of taste But I didn't like it at all

book We Grow Old

We Grow OldErica The resulting poems contain beauty and often wisdom Many are worth reading over and over again Joe Farl A lovely collection of prose poetry with meditations on aging family and love highlighted by bittersweet and humorous moments Yu han Chao has a fascination with her elders and many of these short pieces weave a tender narrative about a variety of old loves—the low but strong fires of a long marriage or the passion between a young woman and her much older lover The best of these pieces tell short stories with the wisdom of a koan presenting the complexity and contradiction of life in poetic and sensual moments the sweet warm taste of a stolen egg the spicy bitterness of kimchi eaten out of spite or a yao tze eaten in shame Chao lives in many worlds at once China Taiwan and the United States; the known past and the uncertain future but the wisdom of these short works transcends time and place This is a fine first collection that benefits from repeated readings
