International Writers Series: Yu Xinqiao and Yunte Huang
Born in Fujian and raised in Zhejiang, Yu Xinqiao is one of the most popular and important poets in China today. After calling for a "Chinese Renaissance Movement" in 1993, Xinqiao was subsequently jailed for eight years. His poem "If I Have to Die," set to music, has become an enormous arena-rock hit and stirring anthem of defiance. Yunte Huang, author of Charlie Chan and other works, is the editor of the new collection The Big Red Book of Modern Chinese Literature: Writings from the Mainland in the Long Twentieth Century, a panoramic literary anthology that includes writers from Nobel laureates Gao Xingjian and Mo Yan to Bei Dao, Yu Hua, Yu Xinqiao and others. Curated and hosted by Anderson Tepper.
