Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive anthology of Chinese poetry from the 12th century B.C. to the present.

"This magnificent collection has the effect of a complete library rather than of an anthology of poetry.... A lyric quality comes through into our own language... Every page is alive with striking and wonderful things, immediately accessible." --Publishers Weekly

"Sunflower Splendor is the largest and, on the whole, best anthology of translated Chinese poems to have appeared in a Western language."--The New York Times Book Review

"This remarkably fine anthology should remain standard for a long time." --Library Journal

"... excellent translations by divers hands. Open to any page and listen to the still, sad music... " --Washington Post Bookworld

Book News Annotation:

**** Cited in BCL3, this is an admirable and comprehensive anthology from the 12th c. BC to the mid 70s. Originally published in 1975 by Doubleday.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Once upon a time I had this book and I foolishly let it go.

It has a very wide range of Chinese poetry -- both temporally and stylistically.

I seem to recall that the footnotes were informative as to the backstory as well, but I wouldn't swear to it at this point.
