和孤獨同樣不朽的是什麼?從奇萊到柏克萊,亂石磊磊的心間正在上升完成的,是詩……。《朝向一首詩的完成》從楊牧朗誦的聲音,展開對於一個龐大文學生命的追索。那個花蓮中學裡踟躕的少年,大度山下論辯學習的身影,在愛荷華選讀古英文的執著與好奇,乃至其穿梭於歐美、中國與台灣的文化資源,融會知識進入文學寫作的嘗試,那對於音韻與想像的計較的決心,均使人重讀楊牧詩文時,更深刻地重新被撼動一次。

楊牧(1940-)台灣花蓮縣人,加州柏克萊大學比較文學博士。中學時代起以葉珊為筆名發表作品。1972年後改用楊牧為筆名,作品風格亦為之一變。赴美後楊牧嘗試敘事詩寫作,文辭典雅麗,詩意深湛雋永。1977年《中國當代十大詩人選集》曾指出楊牧詩表現「美的溢出」、「古典的驚悸」、「自然的律動」。於此之外,也富有對鄉土的認同,對現實的關懷。其詩文多變,深沉,摸索傳統與現代之平衡。

What is immortal like loneliness? From Chi Lai Mountain to Berkeley, what is rising in the confusing mind - poems. Towards the Completion of a Poem rides along with the recitation of Yang Mu, unfolding the exploration towards a vast literary career. From the hesitant young man at National Hualien Senior High School, the college student debating and learning by the Dadu Mountain in Taichung, the researcher dedicated to the studies of ancient English out of persistence and curiosity at the University of Iowa, the writer comfortably absorbing western, Chinese and Taiwanese cultural resources trying to create his literary works, to the poet who is determined to work on rhyme and imagination meticulously; these moments amaze us more deeply when we read Yang Mu's works once again.

Yang Mu (1940- ) was born in Hualien County, Taiwan. He received the PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Berkeley. Since high school, he published using the penname Yeh San. He then changed his name to Yang Mu in 1972 and transformed his writing style. After moving to the United States, he tried to create narrative poems with classic and graceful phrasings, and with in-depth and timeless essence. It was pointed out in Collections of Top Ten Modern Chinese Poets that Yang Mu's poems were the presentation of a "fulfillment of beauty", an "amazement of the classical", and the "rhythm of nature". The recognition of locality and the consideration of reality can also be found in his poems. His style is abundant in change and profoundness, exploring the balance between tradition and modern.
