This rich compendium of translations is the first to look at Chinese poetry through its enormous influence on American poetry. Starting with Ezra Pound’s Cathay (1915), it includes translations by three other American poets (William Carlos Williams, Kenneth Rexroth, Gary Snyder) and a translator-scholar-poet (David Hinton), all long associated with New Directions, the great New York literary publishing house founded just over 70 years ago.
Praise for Ezra Pound 'The previously unpublished pages of an epic masterpiece offer fresh insights into its creation'
Praise for William Carlos Williams 'This is an essential book for anyone who is serious about poetry.'
Steven Hanson, the Manchester Review of Books
