Greg McLaren’s most recent book, After Han Shan and other poems (2012), draws in part from his long and ongoing engagement with the Chinese poetic tradition, and plays out a re-imagination of Han Shan’s poems in an Australian cultural landscape, the NSW Hunter Valley Coalfields that McLaren grew up in.
