David Hinton

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. This has also functioned as a kind of apprenticeship, and Hinton has recently moved toward writing that is original in a more traditional sense. This work can be seen at: davidhinton.net
