Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Michael Pierce Reck (1928-1993) was a poet, educator, specialist in classical and Far Eastern languages and associate of Ezra Pound. His translation focuses on the events and action of the story and emphasizes the tempo of the narrative, using the vernacular when it serves these aims. Chapters are helpfully subtitled for the student. Contains an introduction, glossary, plot summary, and brief historical outline.
