Noise from the Laundry PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Noise from the Laundry free pdf Weyman Chan's second poetry collection elaborates his singular and solitary work on the renaissance of the contemporary lyric form. Unmistakably present in these poems are the sensibilities of Li Po, wherein the powers of nature illuminating a meticulously built landscape articulate a poignant, harmonious but fleeting epiphany- Keats' vision of beauty as an act of passion inscribed on a work of art for all time- and Ovid's understanding that our engagement with the world always demands of us a metamorphosis, the inescapably wondrous child of a marriage of the self and the other.This is a narrative of Chinese pre-history and family stories of love and survival, which "teaches all / and leaves none out" - past and future become one biography in our fractured and disbelieving age.

About Weyman Chan

Weyman Chan, a laboratory technician by trade, wrote his first poem when he was thirteen. Distilling a unique voice and ethnic point of view in the spiraling, non-sequential and non-temporal nature of poetry remains the most liberating form of expression he has found to engage in. "Every writer must come to terms with their own inner language - and it takes time to learn how to use it to best effect."
