Product Details

Praise

“Every Anglophone reader interested in the working mechanics behind Chinese poetry will find these texts to be endless resources worth returning to again and again…Although aimed as being introductory in nature, both A Little Primer of Tu Fu and Chinese Poetic Writing nonetheless forefront the presentation of the poem in Chinese characters, clearly emphasizing the importance of the original language in fully understanding any poetry.” —Rain Taxi

“Tu Fu is…the greatest non-epic, non-dramatic poet who has survived in any language.”—Kenneth Rexroth
