Ever since Yu Xiuhua Detroit Lions Color Rush Jerseys , a farmer and poet with cerebral palsy, published her daring poem Travelling More Than Half of China to Sleep with You last November and had it forwarded by Poetry Periodical in WeChat, she has travelled a bumpy road to fame.
Dozens of journalists have swarmed to her village in Hubei Province to interview her in the hope of finding out how a woman from the countryside was able to shake up the world of poetry in such a short span of time.
Since shooting to fame, she was able to publish her first book of poetry last week after 16 years of writing, before she was appointed by local authorities as deputy chairman of Federation of Literary and Art Circles at Zhongxiang city. She has been hailed by the media as China's Emily Dickinson. Some are astonished by her amazing ability to craft words Jake Rudock Color Rush Jersey , some have raised doubts about her creativity, while others are curious about how overnight fame has changed her life.

While her journey has been incredibly dramatic, Yu herself seems fairly indifferent to it.
"I feel nothing has really changed much," Yu told the Global Times, speaking in her usual low Taylor Decker Color Rush Jersey , indistinct voice. She bluntly requested not to talk about her personal life, but when she starts to talk about poetry, one can hear the excitement in her voice.
While the media portray her as "China's Emily Dickinson," her most widely distributed poem on WeChat shows something quite different. "There is virtually no difference between me to sleep with youAnd you sleeping with meIt's no more than a collision of two bodiesComposing a force under which the flowers blossom." It could be a combination of both Chinese poet Hai Zi and American singer-song writer Janis Joplin.
"Poetry writing, whatever you write about Da'Shawn Hand Color Rush Jersey , needs constant practice. Nobody was born to be a poet. Poets write until a moment when words come out naturally," Yu said.
Words burst from the body
"For 38 years, this body has undermined me, we have leaned on each other, hated each other Tracy Walker Color Rush Jersey ," she wrote in her blog.
She walks clumsily and talks haltingly. Yet she is keen on the physicality of language. Unlike the sentimentality and melodramatic softness of many established poets, the words Yu uses are brutal, free, vivid, angry and violent. Writing poetry is a natural physical impulse for her. She writes of body Graham Glasgow Color Rush Jersey , of marriage, of sex, of the soul.
More than 30 years of sickness has forced her to face a crippled body and stuttering tongue, but during her interview with the Global Times, she showed a sense of humor and optimism. " I believe what I am writing about is the truth from me. I'm trying to let it out."
For her A'Shawn Robinson Color Rush Jersey , writing is not just a mental exercise, it is also an absolutely physical experience.
"Her poems, among contemporary Chinese poems, is like putting a murderer among a group of respectable ladies - everybody else wears fancy clothes, puts on make-up and perfume Michael Roberts Color Rush Jersey , and readers can't see a single bead of sweat. Only she is desperately struggling. Her words are obviously bloodstained," said Liu Nian, an editor in China's most eminent poetry magazine, Poetry Periodical.

The village of Hengdian, Hubei Province Jalen Reeves-Maybin Color Rush Jersey , where she was born in 1976, is an image that constantly appears in her poems. "This damned place" is how she frequently describes this village. "Who can tolerate such a fate! In such a place, in this kind of life, you want to fly, but you can't fly."
Her village is surrounded by hills Kenny Golladay Color Rush Jersey , field and ponds, a desolate place where you can walk for miles without meeting anyone else. Because of her disability, she can't work in the fields, and makes a living by raising rabbits at home.
She had an arranged marriage to a migrant worker from Sichuan Province who is 13 years older than her and is now doing construction work in Beijing.
