"The Columbia Book of Chinese Poetry" presents translations of
more than 420 poems by 96 poets drawn from the great ages of
Chinese poetry. It begins with selections from the "Book of Odes,"
the oldest anthology of Chinese poetry compiled around the seventh
century B.C., and covers the succeeding generations down to the end
of the Sung dynasty in A.D. 1279.
Important poets such as Tao Y?an-ming, LiPo, Tu Fu, Su Tung-po,
and Lu Yu are treated in separate sections with generous samplings
from their works, while lesser poets are represented in chapters
devoted to the particular era in which they lived. A general
introduction discusses the major characteristics and forms of
traditional Chinese poetry, while introductory essays to the
individual chapters outline the history of poetic development in
China over the centuries.
