Glad to have new poems published in Arc Poetry and the Epoch Poetry Quarterly

Glad to have new poems published in Arc Poetry and the Epoch Poetry Quarterly. Thanks editors in Canada and in Taiwan.  Each of them has a national-wide reputation and long history, One in English, the other in Chinese.  Thanks for including my new poems.  Also I want to thank Miguel Ángel Olivé Iglesias from Cuba to publish my poems in Envoy 91! and review my poetry in In a Fragile Moment which includes 31 poets in Canada and will be used to as an introduction to Canadian Literature (and Canada) to students in University of Holguín, Cuba.

《愛的燈塔/Love’s Lighthouse》在台灣出版,广受欢迎和好评!










与普通中英文简单互译的诗集不同,这本诗集的独特之处是针对同一内容的中英文的独立创作。作者是成熟的汉语诗人,同时在英语诗人中享有盛誉。可以说这本诗集只有作者,没有译者。中文诗和英文诗各存异趣,交相辉映,各自承载了两种文字的美感。这为中英比较文学提供了一个范例。       ——曉鳴(北美中西文化交流协会会长)


Yin is endlessly perspicacious, endlessly compelling… She brings to Canadian poetry a sense of classicism and aestheticism and minimalism, all nicely mixed up with sensuality.
—George Elliott Clarke, 7th Parliamentary Poet Laureate of Canada

Anna Yin’s poems give us beauty in all its delicacy and its strength—a full glowing presence that sometimes, mysteriously, is just a fleeting hint, a dance of shadows….This is an original poet following her intuition ever deeper into the secrets of emotion and reality.
—A. F. Moritz, 6th Toronto Poet Laureate, 2009 Griffin Poetry Prize Winner
