Meng Chiao, David Hinton:
The Late Poems of Meng Chiao - Paperback

ISBN: 0691012369

[SR: 1767092], Paperback, [EAN: 9780691012360], Princeton University Press, Princeton University Press, Book, [PU: Princeton University Press], 1997-01-12, Princeton University Press, Late in life, Meng Chiao (A.D. 751--814) developed an experimental poetry of virtuosic beauty, a poetry that anticipated landmark developments in the modern Western tradition by a millennium. With the T'ang Dynasty crumbling, Meng's later work employed surrealist and symbolist techniques as it turned to a deep introspection. This is truly major work-- work that may be the most radical in the Chinese tradition. And though written more than a thousand years ago, it is remarkably fresh and contemporary. But, in spite of Meng's significance, this is the first volume of his poetry to appear in English. Until the age of forty, Meng Chiao lived as a poet-recluse associated with Ch'an (Zen) poet-monks in south China. He then embarked on a rather unsuccessful career as a government official. Throughout this time, his poetry was decidedly mediocre, conventional verse inevitably undone by his penchant for the strange and surprising. After his retirement, Meng developed the innovative poetry translated in this book. His late work is singular not only for its bleak introspection and "avant-garde" methods, but also for its dimensions: in a tradition typified by the short lyric poem, this work is made up entirely of large poetic sequences., 8298098011, Ancient & Classical, 271623011, Ancient, Classical & Medieval, 10248, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10252, Chinese, 271624011, Asian, 10159384011, Regional & Cultural, 10248, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Details of the book
The Late Poems of Meng Chiao:

"The translation is outstanding. David Hinton is simply the best translator of Chinese poetry presently working in English. This is a very intelligently selected group of poems from an important Chinese poet. Hinton reads deeply and with great sensitivity to nuance."--J.P. Seaton, University of North Carolina"David Hinton's translations, while remaining faithful to the meaning and spirit of the original, are consistently imaginative in language and effective as English poetry, and he has shown a remarkable skill in capturing the particular style and voice of the different poets he has tackled."--Burton Watson
