I'm curious why Yu Jian 于坚 wasn't part of this book.

Yes, his omission is notable.

My guess: he is widely published and the compilers felt it was time to promote some other, less-known Yunnan poets. Take Flash Cards, for instance, a collection of his poetry published in English.

Or perhaps the compilers excluded him because he just ain't Yunnan enough; turns out that this poet who is so associated with Kunming was reportedly born in Ziyang, Sichuan...
