Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The "Chuang Tzu" is one of the most justly celebrated texts of the Chinese tradition — impressive for both its bold philosophical imagination and its striking literary style. Accepting the challenge of translating this captivating classic in its entirety, Burton Watson has expertly rendered into English both the profound thought and the literary brilliance of the text.

Synopsis:

This is one of the Translations from the Oriental Classics by which the Committee on Oriental Studies has sought to transmit to Western readers representative works of the major Asian traditions in thought and literature. The Chuang Tzu is one of the most justly celebrated texts of the Chinese tradition. Impressive for both its bold philosophical imagination and its striking literary style, the Chuang Tzu has been a challenge for centuries to the best minds in the Far East, and has usually captivated even those it could not convince.
