What People are Saying About This
As many readers will surely be, I am very grateful for Beyond Spring, which gives me an ancient poetry of which I had known nothing. Julie Landau's translations are exquisite, conveying these old poems with fresh poignancy, with clarity of image, and with a truly evoked 'essence beyond the image.'
