Product Description

A comprehensive anthology of Chinese poetry from the 12th century B.C. to the present.

Sunflower Splendor is the largest and, on the whole, best anthology of translated Chinese poems to have appeared in a Western language."―The New York Times Book Review

This remarkably fine anthology should remain standard for a long time." ―Library Journal

... excellent translations by divers hands. Open to any page and listen to the still, sad music... " ―Washington Post Bookworld
