This paper is about a study trip to Beijing to take part in the first Conference on Australian Studies in China, at the Beijing Foreign Studies Institutes. He meets a number of Chinese writers, noting that, like Australian poets, Chinese poets deal only obliquely with personality, preferring to write of friendship, the land, the drinking mate. Impressions about China are abundant, with Australia seeming a far and insignificant place from the ordered and bustling streets and the grey housing blocks of Beijing, and language seeming to have lost its power.
