First published in 1956. Arthur Waley here presents an engrossing
account of the works and life of Yuan Mei (1716-1797), the
best-known poet of his time. Gaiety is the keynote of his works and
the poet was a friend of the Manchu official with whom Commodore
Anson had dramatic dealings at Canton in 1743. Yuan Mei gives an
account (not previously translated) of Anson's interview with the
Manchu authorities. The book contains many translations of Yuan
Mei's verse and prose.
