Often reported to be on the shortlist for the Nobel Prize for Literature, and recently elected an honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Bei Dao is China's pre-eminent contemporary poet. The poems in "Landscape Over Zero" reach new heights of cinematic fusion as he contemplates the fractured landscapes amongst which he has lived since his enforced exile from China in 1989. But now there is a glimmer of possibility that a new home can be gained and love renewed.
