Love and Protest: Chinese Poems from the 6th Century B.C. to the 17th Century A.D.
Love and Protest Chinese Poems from the 6th Century BC to the 17th Century AD Author:John Scott Excerpt from the introduction by the author: — "An English friend once complained to me: 'The trouble with Chines verse is that it all sounds the same.' One of the ambitions of this book is to attempt to dispel such impressions. I hope that this collection will help to complement the work of other translators by including not only a ... more »large number of poems which have not previously been rendered into English, but also verse genres which have been mainly overlooked in the standard anthologies."
