3.0 out of 5 stars High hopes but not my style, 7 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Shambhala Anthology of Chinese Poetry (Shambhala Pocket Classics) (Paperback)
I love Chinese poetry. I was birthed into this area with the The Anchor Book of Chinese Poetry: From Ancient to Contemporary, the Full 3000-Year Tradition, which stands as one of my all-time favourite books.

After reading reviews of JP Seaton I opened this book eagerly. Alas, it just is not my style. I'm sure other readers will find it very much IS your style, and I hope you enjoy it.

Why is it not your style? You weren't very specific..

It's hard to be specific when it comes to poetry. I can't really say, other than try and read a few sample poems before you buy it, and see if it is to your taste.

It is amazing how one translator will take a poem and it will touch me to the core, and another will string words together that do nothing for me.

That's fair enough, and I know what you mean by it; personally I would have included it in the review, but still, thanks for the informative heads-up.
