Wandering Mind and Metaphysical Thoughts

Gao Xingjian. Translated by Gilbert C. F. Fong.

The Chinese University Press

This English-Chinese bilingual edition is the complete first book of poems written by Nobel Prize winner Gao Xingjian. His poems offer an array of snapshots over various themes where politics, dreams, and metaphysical concerns are mixed. With original art works by Gao, this collection advances his innovative experiments in poetry across cultural boundaries.
This bilingual edition contains not only 'snippets of his reflective moods' but also reproductions of Gao’s art to accompany his words. Poems of fragmentation and collision, they reflect the current crises of art, politics, and the psyche in China as well as abroad. World Literature Today
