A beautiful introduction to the art of Chinese poetry, presenting 35 poems in English and Chinese that span 19 centuries. The translator/authors evoke the mood and tone of the original poem while the illustrations foster an appreciation of the close relationship between poetry and other art forms. Each poem includes a literal translation and the accompanying text places each work in a historical and thematic context.

January 2002 - Library Bookwatch

Haunting, lyrical poems are intended to delight and fascinate poetry lovers of all ages. Striking, full-color illustrations intersperse the historical poems. . . .What truly sets A Thousand Peaks apart, however, is that the poems themselves are offered in bilingual format: their original Chinese characters, the romanized version of the Chinese words, a very strictly literal translation, and the modern poetic translation that attempts to properly ascribe nuances. Poetry devotees can compare translations and interpret the true meaning, heart, and soul of each poem for themselves.
