About the Author

Wang An-Shih was a Chinese economist, statesman, chancellor and poet of the Song Dynasty.
David Hinton's translations of classical Chinese poetry have earned him wide acclaim for creating compelling contemporary poems that convey the texture and density of the originals. He is the editor of numerous anthologies of Chinese poetry and the first in over a century to translate the four seminal masterworks of Chinese philosophy: Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tzu, Analects, and Mencius. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Landon Translation Award, the PEN Translation Award, and most recently the Thornton Wilder Award for Translation from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Reviews

David Hinton's music is subtle, modulated, and does not slacken with either contemporary or classic. He has listened to the individual tone of each poet, and his craft is equal to his perception.--Rosmarie Waldrop
David Hinton has managed to find his own way through the rivers and mountains of medieval Chinese verse re-imagining the poems themselves as subtle soundscapes suspended in us.
Wang's poetry possesses the power to transport the reader to another time and place.--John Bradley
