Description
A major poet of the Tang dynasty, and a friend and poetic correspondent of such giants as Bai Juyi and Han Yu, Zhang Ji (c.766830) is published in English translation for the first time in this collection of 300 poems. They demonstrate the remarkable range of Zhang's stylistic choices, from atmospheric landscape quatrains, evoking vast scenes with just a few brilliantly chosen words, to folk-style "Music Bureau" poems, conjuring up the impact of great historical events like the Tibetan invasions of China on ordinary people. Also unusual, the poems are rendered in rhymed or half-rhymed translations, tracking the original rhyme schemes, which play an important if often overlooked role in Chinese poetics.
