The inner chapters by Zhuangzi( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected from a founding classic of Taoism, these chapters are the only portions believed to be the work of Chuang Tzu himself. "On their deepest level, the Inner Chapters are a meditation on the mysteries of knowledge iteself."--Jacket
The selected poems of Wang Wei by Wei Wang( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wang Wei (701-761 C.E.) is often spoken of, with his contemporaries Li Po and Tu Fu, as one of the three greatest poets in China's 3,000-year poetic tradition. Of the three, Wang was the consummate master of the short imagistic landscape poem that came to typify classical Chinese poetry. He developed a nature poetry of resounding tranquility wherein deep understanding goes far beyond the words on the page--a poetics that can be traced to his assiduous practice of Ch'an (Zen) Buddhism. But in spite of this philosophical depth, Wang is not a difficult poet. Indeed, he may be the most immediately appealing of China's great poets, and in Hinton's masterful translations he sounds utterly contemporary. Many of his best poems are incredibly concise, composed of only twenty words, and they often turn on the tiniest details: a bird's cry, a splinter of light on moss, an egret's wingbeat. Such imagistic clarity is not surprising since Wang was also one of China's greatest landscape painters (see cover illustration). This is a breathtaking poetry, one that in true Zen fashion renders the ten thousand things of this world in such a way that they empty the self even as they shimmer with the clarity of their own self-sufficient identity."--Publisher's website
The selected poems of Tu Fu by Fu Du( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selected poems of Li Po by Bai Li( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Li Po (A.D. 701-762) lived in T'ang Dynasty China, but his influence has spanned the centuries: the pure lyricism of his poems has awed readers in China and Japan for over a millennium, and through Ezra Pound's translations, Li Po became central to the modernist revolution in the West. His work is suffused with Taoism and Ch'an (Zen) Buddhism, but these seem not so much spiritual influences as the inborn form of his life
The analects (Lun yü) by Confucius( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Analects, or Lun Yu, represents the primary surviving source for the teachings of Confucius, the most influential sage in human history. The book's defining characteristic is its form -- brief aphoristic fragments, each appearing with little supporting context
The late poems of Meng Chiao by Jiao Meng( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

But, in spite of Meng's significance, this is the first volume of his poetry to appear in English. After his retirement, Meng developed the innovative poetry translated in this book. His late work is singular not only for its bleak introspection and "avant-garde" methods, but also for its dimensions: in a tradition typified by the short lyric poem, this work is made up entirely of large poetic sequences
The selected poems of T'ao Ch'ien by Qian Tao( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forms of distance by Beidao( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Chinese and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bilingual collection of poems by a Chinese dissident. "The world's agents of freedom / entered me into their computer / an alien voice sneaking into the dictionary / a dissident / perhaps a form of distance from the world." By the author of Old Snow
Mencius by Mencius( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selected poems of Po Chü-I by Juyi Bai( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Po Chu-i (772-846 C.E.) is the quintessential Chinese poet. For although clear thought and depth of wisdom inform the work of all major Chinese poets (as opposed to the complexity and virtuosity often valued in the West), Po makes clarity itself his particular vision
Tao te ching : a new English version by Laozi( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching is not only the single most important text in Chinese spirituality, it is probably the most influential spiritual text in human history. In the past, virtually all translations of this text have been produced either by sinologists having little poetic facility in English, or writers having no ability to read the original Chinese. David Hinton's fluency in ancient Chinese and his award-winning poetic ability combine both of these essential qualifications. Together, they allow a breathtaking new translation that reveals how remarkably current and even innovative this text is after 2500 years."--Back cover

The four Chinese classics : Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tzu, Analects, Mencius( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The books collected in this volume represent the first time since the mid-nineteenth century that the four seminal masterworks of ancient Chinese thought have been translated as a unified series by a single translator. Hinton's award-winning experience translating a wide range of ancient Chinese poets makes these books sing in English as never before. But these new versions are not only inviting and immensely readable, they also apply much-needed consistency to key philosophical terms in these texts, lending structural links and philosophical rigor heretofore unavailable in English.
