Three Chinese Poets

350

Category: Tag:

Vikram Seth translates three T’ang dynasty poets—Wang Wei (699–761 AD), Li Bai (701–762 AD) and Du Fu (712–770 AD)—who are among the greatest literary figures not only of China, but also the world. Responding differently to their common times, these poets bring their inner and outer worlds together in a delicate tapestry of spare beauty. They speak to us across a distance of twelve hundred years, and move us as it is rare for even poetry to do.

Translated with grace, empathy and superb craft, this collection is a masterpiece.
