by Kiều TrinhTranslator Dương Tường has passed away at the age of 91. “Dương Tường was a dreamer with a strongly marked artistic turn of mind. With that innocence, Dương Tường walked leisurely into many artistic paths. If translating is his way of bringing the world's elite culture to Vietnamese readers, then poetry and painting are the fields that he wanted to wander to discover and innovate. Dương Tường was a contributing short story translator and arts writer to the Việt Nam News in its early days from 1991-1999.
