198 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "The eight centuries that lie between the founding of the Han (206 B.C.) and the fall of the Sui (618 A.D.) are of considerable importance in the history of Chinese verse. It was during these ye ars that the lyric and the ballad took roots, grew and blossomed before coming to fruition during the T'ang. Many of the greatest Chinese poets, among them Ts'ao Chih, Juan Chi, T'ao Yuan-ming, Hsieh Ling-yun, Pao Chao and Yu Hsin shone ou t d u r i n g this era among a galaxy of brilliant writers. Yet very little of the verse of the time has hitherto been available to Western readers. This anthology is the first to present a full and balanced selection of this poetry in translati on . Th e st yl is t ic range, complexity, and subtlety of the poems presented here will bear witness to the claim that this epoch must be ranked among the major periods of world literature." Previous owner's bookplate and chop (stamp) on free fro nt en d pap er , a fe w v er y tiny foxing marks on top of textblock. Dust jacket is clipped, has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top of spine, slight browning to spine. Very Good/Very Good
