A comprehensive anthology of Chinese poetry from the 12th century B.C. to the present.
"This magnificent collection has the effect of a complete library rather than of an anthology of poetry.... A lyric quality comes through into our own language... Every page is alive with striking and wonderful things, immediately accessible." -Publishers Weekly
"Sunflower Splendor is the largest and, on the whole, best anthology of translated Chinese poems to have appeared in a Western language."-The New York Times Book Review
"This remarkably fine anthology should remain standard for a long time." -Library Journal
"... excellent translations by divers hands. Open to any page and listen to the still, sad music... " -Washington Post Bookworld
