Face to face with my wine jar,
I did not notice the fall of night
or that fallen flowers
overflowed my clothes.

Drunk, I arose and walked
by the stream filled with moonlight--
all the birds had gone home
and men also were few.

(Li Po)

Description:


"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)


Three Hundred Tang Poems includes great names like Li Bai, Du Fu, and Wang Wei, as well as a splendid sampling of the rest of poets who helped to make the Tang the golden age of Chinese poetry.
