What’s The Word?

Over the past several decades, interest in Chinese women poets has flourished. Many female voices lost for centuries have been recovered from libraries and archives, and contemporary women poets in both Taiwan and Mainland China have increased in number. Grace Fong talks about her work recovering the poetry of women writers from late imperial China; Haun Saussy, an editor of "Women Writers of Traditional China", an anthology of poetry and criticism, reads works by several writers included in the anthology; and Michelle Yeh talks about her book "Frontier Taiwan" and reads works by two 20th-century Chinese women poets.
