Coming out this summer, Leung Ping-Kwan’s newest book of poetry Chinese poems from Provence features poems written since 2006 that have not been previously published in a collection. This work originates from Leung’s visits to the Saorge Monastery on the Alps in the summer of 2006, and his re-exploration of Aix-en-Provence in 2008 which had inspired him to write three new series of poems. In this newest book, Leung writes of the sunshine, the grassy aroma, and the friendly nature of the people he met in Southern France. These cultural explorations -- including a revisit of classical Chinese poetry and imaginary conversations with Chinese and French poets/artists– have produced six new series of contemplative verses. The combination of Chinese poems from Provence and his recent work en ces jours instables (published by MCCM), along with a new series of poems titled ”Shades of the City” (that appeared in Fleurs des Lettres), promises an exceptional poetic experience that only a poet of Leung’s stature can deliver.
