Stephen Collington

Stephen Collington studied English and Chinese at the University of Toronto, and Comparative Literature at the University of Tokyo. Which is as much as to say, writing in English about writing Chinese poetry in Japanese is the sort of thing that almost comes naturally to him at this point. (He also writes some poems himself now and then, though not always in Chinese.) He would like to dedicate his article to Naomi Fukumori, fellow student and friend, with thanks for the improbable gift of The Anyone-Can-Do-It Method all those years ago.
