A long poem in sixty-four hexameters, following the parallel lives of Mao Tse Tung and Jong, a Chinese immigrant to rural Saskatechewan. Using a fugal form, Dyck intertwines the I Ching, the history of revolutionary China and immigrant life. "The December sun shone on banners waving / in Kwantung province a mother bore Jong / Banners blown : blown by the wind / Dark was the mountain: overcast in the north / in Human province : when Mao was born / a red star gleamed in the dark red north."
Ted Dyck has written four books of poetry and numerous periodical publications. He currently lives in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan.
