A beautiful book made special and understandable by the choices made by Ms Le Guin and her sympathetic descriptions of the texts. The poems are minimalist and thought provoking while also being simple. A lovely book to pick up and consider the philosophy of how to live in peace.

An extremely interesting translation by a great author. She sheds new light on a book I have known for decades.

Beautiful translation of this classic. Sounds closer than ever to modernist poetry.

I am a great admirer of Ursula Le Guin's work and recently took up Tai Chi
I haven't read lots of different translations of this work and can't
read Chinese so to read something created by a writer I respect
and love is always an interesting prospect. This translation is imbued with
the qualities that make U K Le Guin so special. If you like her writing
and would like to know more of the philosophical and moral underpinnings
then this is one source. I think it must be a daunting task to
undertake to translate from a language that you can't read, and no doubt
people who can read Chinese will question the translation but I enjoyed
it and gained from it.
