"Translation of poetry from Vietnamese to English presents difficult problems; these translations are among the best I've ever seen. The book will appeal to scholars and teachers in the fields of Viet Nam War studies, postcolonial literary studies, and Pacific Rim studies. It could easily be used as a course text, as well as provide important material for scholars. ... A most useful and beautiful work." - Renny Christopher, author of The Viet Nam War/The American War: Images and Representations in Euro-American and Vietnamese Exile Narratives - "The quality of the translations is excellent." - Ngo Nhu Binh, Harvard University.
