Yellow Mountain Poets

After a week's workshop on poetry translations in Wales, Odia Ofeimun on other participating poets brought their poetry to the Purcell Room of London's South Bank Centre on 7th June 2008, in a night of readings celebrating 'The Poetry of the Yellow Mountain'. On the bill were Chinese poets Yang Lian, Wang Xiaoni, Luo Ying (who read an excerpt of his thought-provoking poem, 'The Last Person' in Chinese, then Murray Edmond read the whole thing in English), Xi Chuan (read in Chinese; then his work was read in English by Robert Minhinnick) and editor of The Poetry Review, Fiona Sampson.
