The poetry of Sze and Weaver reflects an Eastern influence that transcends, that blossoms, that quiets, and that inspires. Arthur Sze is the author of eight books of poetry, including The Ginkgo Light, Quipu, and The Silk Dragon: Translations from the Chinese. Afaa Michael Weaver’s most recent book, The Plum Flower Dance: Poems 1985 to 2005, is arranged according to the five-element theory in Chinese philosophy to show the ways in which childhood trauma has affected his writing and his life.
Conversation moderated by poet Reginald Harris.
This reading is in collaboration with the Folger exhibition Imagining China: The View from Europe, 1550-1700.
