Writer and translator David Hinton will speak at Mountain Cloud on Wednesday evening April 11, 2018 and 7pm. Please join us for this special event. Cost is free but please offer dana.
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.
