"Everything Can be Translated"

It is a good time to remember Yang Xianyi, noted translator, English scholar and poet. He passed away at age 94.

Despite the sad news, it is best to look at the man's passions. He brought the Selected Works of Lu Xun and A Dream of Red Mansions to a wider world-wide audience with his English translations.

It is said that Chairman Mao doubted whether Lu Xun can be translated. We should be thankful for the likes of Yang Xianyi, who bravely believed "Everything can be translated."

Yang's autobiography is entitled "White Tiger".
