5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Experience, February 8, 2008
By 
This review is from: Evoking Tang: An Anthology of Classical Chinese Poetry (Paperback)
A beautifully designed collection of poems from the era of China's T'ang Dynasty (7th-9th centuries), poetry's golden age, translated into English by the renowned mystery novelist and poet Qiu Xiaolong. The 80+ poems appear in traditional Chinese characters on the left, facing Qiu's very contemporary English translations. Poets such as Du Fu, Wang Wei, and Li Shangyin come back to life, sounding very much like us in their intense, mostly short poems on friendship, nature, aging, sexual temptation, travel, and the seasons. A book that demystifies Chinese poetry, enhanced by the book's design including classic woodcuts and ink drawings. Readers will warm to it at once.
