Sam Hamill, author of Almost Paradise: New and Selected Poems and Translations “This anthology, with its inviting introduction, represents the lifework of the translator and a heritage of scholarship. ” —W. S. Merwin, author of Migration: New and Selected Poems ABOUT THE BOOK In traditional Chinese culture, poetic artistry held a place that was unrivaled by any other single talent and that was a source of prestige and even of political power. In this rich collection, J. P. Seaton introduces the reader to the main styles of Chinese poetry and the major poets, from the classic Shih Ching to the twentieth century.

Certainly most of the poets of the past two thousand–plus years have taken it as mockery of Ch’u Yuan’s philosophical position, if not of the poet himself. The Chou fell gradually, to be ultimately superseded by the famous Ch’in dynasty, a veritable Reich that would last a thousand years but lasted no longer than Hitler’s. It had no wen and left no literature, burning books instead. I offer two short poems from this period. One is attributed to Liu Pang, the peasant who became founder of the Han, and the other to the prince of Ch’u Hsiang Yu, who was his last rival for the throne.

And before they get drunk, they’re upright and proper, true to their places. Oh, but say they do get drunk . . “upright and proper” become “stumble and scramble” as leaving their places they trip, dance, and ramble. When they’re not yet too drunk, they’re upright and proper . . When I say they’re “drunk”? They don’t know their places. When they’re drunk, they hoot and they howl, kick over the tables and prance all around. When people are drunk, they don’t know the boundaries, with their hats on crosswise, they resort to lewd dancing.
