The launch event for Richard Berengarten’s new book, Changing, will take place at the University Library, Cambridge, on Thursday May 11th, from 5.00 to around 7.00 p.m. Changing is in part a homage to the Chinese classic 易經, known in English as the I Ching, Yijing or Book of Changes. The book was first launched in the Department of Chinese at the University of Chicago. It contains a preface by Professor Edward L. Shaughnessy, the leading specialist on the Book of Changes in the English-speaking world. This is an unusual event, which combines aspects of the contemporary Anglophone poetic tradition with this ancient Chinese masterpiece.
The event will involve collaboration with the French artist Geneviève Guetemme. Two other books launched at the same event will be RB: A Portrait in Interviews (ed. Paschalis Nikolaou and John Z. Dillon), and the revised Critical Companion to RB. Here is a more detailed web-announcement: https://specialcollections.blog.lib.cam.ac.uk/?p=14288.
