Editorial Reviews

Review

Unencumbered by heavy scholarly notes and commentary, the book is light and casual; the eloquent and beautiful style of the translations matches Po's style of poetry, which is known for its clarity and simplicity

(CHOICE)

Watson's insight into Po's life and his clear presentation of the poet's thoughts and visions, with chronologically arranged well-annotated translations of the poems fully enhanced by his reader-friendly style, assures this volume a place amongst the treasures of undergraduate and secondary school teaching materials.

(Education about Asia 1900-01-00)

The previous review does not pertain to the content but to the specific media purchased. I own and have read this particular volume and have enjoyed other translated works by Watson. Watson is consistently reliable and broadly respected.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a great admirer of Burton Watson, especially his work on the Lotus Sutra. I got the Po Chui Kindle edition and I have a bone to pick with how text and titles are organized on the screen. Looks like someone did a straight PDF that did not quite convert. I would not recommend the Kindle title as it is to anyone.
