  • Lê Xuân Nhuận (Westernised arrangement: Nhuan Xuan Le or Nhuan X. Le or Nhuan Le), born on January 2, 1930 in Huế (Vietnam), is a Vietnamese-American poet/writer under the pen name Thanh-Thanh.He created and leads the "Xây-Dựng" literary society and publishing house that was recognized at the unique pre-1975 "Đại Hội Văn Hóa Quốc Gia 11-1-1957" National Cultural Festival as one branch of the ancient Vietnam Culture Tree.He was among the rare Vietnamese who have, since 1947, opposed all the political regimes in Vietnam: France's colonialism, Emperor Bảo Đại's feudalism, President Ngô Đình Diệm's dictatorship, President Nguyễn Văn Thiệu's stratocracy, and communism.He had consequently been at times fired, arrested, imprisoned, demoted, put under house arrest, exiled, persecuted...But, although he did not agree with and was ill-treated by the French, Bảo Đại, Ngô Đình Diệm, and Nguyễn Văn Thiệu, he had zealously served under them, against communism above all, and, as a Human Rights defender, effectively contributed to glorifying "the True, the Good, and the Beautiful."He was finally admitted to the United States as a political refugee in 1992.As a poet, he composes his own poems in English and translates other authors' works into English verse.After Poems by Selected Vietnamese, he recently published Vietnamese Choice Poems introducing 146 pieces by 81 poets living in the USA, Canada, Australia, France, Belgium, Germany, Norway and Vietnam.He is a member of International PEN (Center USA).
