On Poetry and Culture Shock

Terrible losses

Oh my. Eduardo Haro Tecglen and Ba Jin have died. Haro Tecglen, for those of you outside Spain, was a Spanish journalist who had had a column in a leading newspaper for as long as anyone could remember. And Ba Jin was a Chinese novelist, whose The Kao Family shaped my understanding of life when I was in my early teens.

I'm not in the mood to translate a chunk of the works of either.
