Lyric sustains by renewal. Some renewal comes from within, when a culture surges ahead, some again when a culture clashes with another culture. This book narrates both.


Distinctive for its variety of approach, this volume features a truly international and multicultural authorship, and encompasses an extraordinary range of lyric conception and practice– Chinese, Greek, Indian, Japanese and Korean.
