Review of “My Mountain Country,” poetry by Ye Lijun, translated by Fiona Sze-Lorrain

2019-2020 Fellow Fiona Sze-Lorrain's translation of My Mountain Country by Ye Lijun was reviewed by Jennifer Wong in the Asian Review of Books.

"An accomplished, multilingual translator and poet, Sze-Lorrain demonstrates her keenness to remain faithful to the meaning and nuanced language in Lijun’s poetry. Overall, the translations never stray far from the original, faithfully maintaining the mystery in Lijun’s poetry, her experimentation with syntax, line breaks and the lack of punctuation, and a sense of fluidity in meaning."
