Bui Giang’s poetry on display in capital

By Hanh Thu in Hanoi

A book collection from the pen of poet Bui Giang themed ‘Bui Giang trong coi nguoi ta’ (Bui Giang in life’ will be held for a week from Wednesday at Dong Tay Book Cafe at 11A Tran Quy Kien Street in Cau Giay District, Hanoi.

The collection covers his work published before and after 1975. The pieces all depict an eccentric portrait of Giang as well as marking important events in his life with Mua nguon (Rain in the mountains), the Vietnamese version of The Little Prince and Chan troi van nghe (The literary horizon).

With over 110 books on display it is the largest collection of works by Giang to be on public display.

Local artists regard Giang as a peculiar poet. His appeal seems to be from his own character as his lifestyle and works ranging from essays, philosophic research, literature and poems captured their attention.

The display is carried out thanks to the collections of reporter Yen Ba and members of the website http://sachxua.net/forum/ .
