David Hinton is a writer and translator who has produced a body of work exploring the weave of consciousness and landscape. This exploration is informed throughout by the insights of ancient Chinese culture; and it has primarily taken the form of translation, which he uses as a way to make contemporary poetry that operates outside the limitations of self-identity and the Western intellectual tradition. Over the last decade, Hinton has moved toward writing that is original in a more traditional sense: poetry and lyrical/philosophical essays.
David has won numerous distinguished literary awards including the Thornton Wilder Lifetime Achievement Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Pen American Translation Prize and multiple National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities Fellowships.
