The Anchor book of Chinese poetry ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Anchor Book of Chinese Poetry spans three thousand years, bringing together more than six hundred poems by more than one hundred thirty poets, in translations-many new and exclusive to the book-by an array of distinguished translators. Here is the grand sweep of Chinese poetry, from the Book of Songs-ancient folk songs said to have been collected by Confucius himself-and Laozi's Dao De Jing to the vividly pictorial verse of Wang Wei, the romanticism of Li Po, the technical brilliance of Tu Fu, and all the way up to the twentieth-century poetry of Mao Zedong and the post--Cultural Revolution verse of the Misty poets. The book also includes a preface on the art of translation, a general introduction to Chinese poetic form, biographical headnotes for each of the poets, and concise essays on the dynasties that structure the book.

Laughing lost in the mountains : poems of Wang Wei by Wei Wang ( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and German and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
poems here may be read with pleasure by the general reader and scholar alike, for the distinguished translators succeed in making the pieces work poetically in modern English while still retaining their ecstasy of stillness and quiet lucidity. A critical introduction provides helpful background and compares Wang Wei to mystical poets in other cultures; extensive endnotes permit deeper appreciation of the works. Wang Wei was a talented musician, painter, and poet who

The art of writing : teachings of the Chinese masters ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ancient Chinese regarded the written word as a transformative force able to move heaven and earth and unite the reader with the source of all things, the Tao. The power of writing, especially poetry, is celebrated here in short texts that present both practical instruction and spiritual insight: Lu Ji's essay in verse, "The Art of Writing," reveals the inner process every writer must go through in preparing for the creative act. Sikong Tu's "Twenty-four Styles of Poetry" teaches that poets must perfect themselves internally in order to achieve perfection in what they write. "Poets' Jade Splinters" contains aphoristic prescriptions and humorous anecdotes about poetry, poets, and the rules of composition. Assorted commentaries and critical evaluations focus on Chinese lyrical poetry

The golem of Los Angeles : by Tony Barnstone ( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These are sexy, slangy, funny poems, and strangely enough many of the sexiest and slangiest of them are sonnets or villanelles. In addition to the personal poems, the many narrative poems here bring to life the dead of the Holocaust, the heroin addict who gets a job in Beijing so he can't get the drug, the Arab dhow captain off the coast of Kenya, and the physicist studying neutrinos at the South Pole. --Tony Barnstone
