Ouyang Yu’s ‘Fainting with Freedom’ reviewed by Elena Gomez

Ouyang Yu cover

‘Though a playful exploration of the sounds, textures and semantics of English and Chinese languages, this collection hints at a deeper ambiguity with the world and how we make meaning of and in it.’

‘Most enjoyable about this collection is the way it often borrows the language of profundity only to almost immediately cut it down at the knees. It’s poetry that is wry, curly, tonal and suspicious of platitudes.’
