About the Book    About the Author

An eclectic survey of the transaction and original formal poetry of Keith Holyoak.

Keith Holyoak carries his expertise as a scholar and translator of Chinese poetry to a new level—he has composed an entire volume of his own poetry in the style of the earliest classical Chinese poems. Holyoak has also included a number of his expert translations of some of these poems, but the bulk of Foreigner is in his own distinctive voice and manner. The poems touch upon many topics and scenes, not all of them Chinese, but this American poet has managed to resurrect for anglophone readers the tone, aura, reticence, and profoundly dignified simplicity of the classical Chinese masters whom he has studied. Foreigner is also a magnificently illustrated book, with pictures that comport perfectly with the exquisite text.
