The Chinese poetic tradition is the largest and longest continuous tradition in world literature. This title offers a collection of five hundred poems that provides an account of its first three millennia (1500 BCE-1200 CE). It also introduces the work that riveted Ezra Pound and transformed modern poetry.
David Hinton's translations of classical Chinese poetry have earned him a Guggenheim fellowship, numerous NEA and NEH fellowships, and both of the major awards given for poetry translation in the United States, the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award, from the Academy of American Poets, and the PEN Award for Poetry in Translation, from the PEN American Center. He is also the first translator in over a century to translate the four seminal works of Chinese philosophy: the Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tzu, Analects, and Mencius. He lives in Vermont.
