A comprehensive anthology of Chinese poetry from the 12th century B.C. to the present.

This magnificent collection has the effect of a complete library rather than of an anthology of poetry.... A lyric quality comes through into our own language... Every page is alive with striking and wonderful things, immediately accessible." —Publishers Weekly

Sunflower Splendor is the largest and, on the whole, best anthology of translated Chinese poems to have appeared in a Western language."—The New York Times Book Review

This remarkably fine anthology should remain standard for a long time." —Library Journal

... excellent translations by divers hands. Open to any page and listen to the still, sad music... " —Washington Post Bookworld
