Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In traditional Chinese culture, poetic artistry held a place that was unrivaled by any other single talent, and was a source of prestige and even of political power. In this rich collection, J. P. Seaton introduces the reader to the main styles of Chinese poetry and the major poets, from the classic Shih Ching to the twentieth century. Seaton has a poet's ear, and his translations here are fresh and vivid.

Synopsis:

A treasury of fresh translations of Chinese poetry through the ages, with explanatory notes by a preeminent translator and scholar.
