1.0 out of 5 stars Unknown sources; content from Wikipedia 31 Oct. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The first part of the ebook appears to have been drawn from a Wikipedia page. The text is full of irrelevant hyperlinks to other Wikipedia pages. (A link, for example, for "alcoholic beverages"). There is no information about the nature of this particular translation or the translator. The title page, in fact, lists no publisher or translator. There is no information about the source of the original Chinese on which the translation is supposed to be based. The book does include Chinese characters. I cannot read these. In any case, there is no telling what sources were used for this material. The translation itself, wherever it comes from, is of no great merit. I recommend against purchasing this product, at least until the publisher, whoever it is, provides even the bare minimum of information about the publication.

Reaading Chinese poetry is a new experience, so unlike that of the West. It gives a bettere understanding of Chinese culture. An extra benefit is the text in Chinese characters for anyone trying to learn the language.
