Abstract:
“Shadow Show” is the first and most important poetry cycle in Beyond Symbols — Wong’s only collection of English poems — and is a translation by Wong from his Chinese poem 皮影戏 [Pi Ying Xi]. Wong utilises the Asian traditional art of puppetry to symbolise the dismal fate of the colonised people.
