THE SILENT ZERO, IN SEARCH OF SOUND:  AN ANTHOLOGY OF CHINESE POEMS FROM THE BEGINNING THROUGH THE SIXTH CENTURY., Sackheim, Eric, translator.
4 Sackheim, Eric, translator. THE SILENT ZERO, IN SEARCH OF SOUND: AN ANTHOLOGY OF CHINESE POEMS FROM THE BEGINNING THROUGH THE SIXTH CENTURY.
Mushinsha / Grossman Publishers, New York, 1971. 
174 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), soft cover with self-flaps. "The collection begins with examples from the 'Book of Odes', China's oldest extant literary work, and moves through the various song forms of the late Han and the work of many of the major poets (Ts'ao Chih, T'ao Ch'ien, Hsieh Ling-yun, Yu Hsin, etc.) of the great lyrical efflorescence of the Six Dynasties Period. Though the translations are extensively annotated, and the preface contains an outline of Chinese verse during the period, the primary concern here is not with philology or literary history, but with poetry....Mr. Sackheim has sought, through an unusual degree of verbal fidelity, to discover what these early Chinese poets have to teach us, today, about poetry in our own lan guage." Interior - previous owner's bookplate on first page and chop (stamp) on half-title page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - spine is slightly concave and has minor soiling. Very Good
