"The road to Shu is hard, but harder still is to convey the spirit with which these poems were first written over a thousand years ago. And yet the translators have given us translations that feel alive, as if they were more like a dance between poet and translator, both of whom live on through the beauty of these poems. The night is young, and this book is full of music."Red Pine
