Description

"The road to Shu is hard, but harder still is to convey the spirit with which these poems were first written over a thousand years ago. And yet the translators have given us translations that feel alive, as if they were more like a dance between poet and translator, both of whom live on through the beauty of these poems. The night is young, and this book is full of music."--Red Pine Three Hundred Tang Poems includes great names like Li Bai, Du Fu, and Wang Wei, as well as a splendid sampling of the rest of poets who helped to make the Tang the golden age of Chinese poetry.

Review quote

"The road to Shu is hard, but harder still is to convey the spirit with which these poems were first written over a thousand years ago. And yet Geoffrey Waters has done just that. Joined by his friends Michael Farman and David Lunde, he has given us translations that feel alive, as if they were more like a dance between poet and translator, both of whom live on through the beauty of these poems. The night is young, and this book is full of music." --Red Pine
