By Li Po,J. P. Seaton
Calling himself the "God of Wine" and recognized to his buyers as a "fallen immortal," Li Po wrote with eloquence, vividness, and infrequently playfulness, as he extols the thrill of nature, wine, and the lifetime of a wandering recluse. Li Po had a powerful social sense of right and wrong, and he struggled opposed to the not easy occasions of his age. He was once encouraged via the newly blossoming Zen Buddhism and merged it with the Taoism that he had studied all his existence.
Though Li Po's love of wine is famous, the translator, J. P. Seaton, contains poems on a variety of topics—friendship and love, political feedback, poems written to curry patronage, poems of the spirit—to provide a brand new interpretation of this great of chinese language poetry. Seaton deals us a poet who discovered challenging classes from a lifestyles lived difficult and provided his readers those classes as shiny, vigorous poetry—as suitable this present day because it used to be through the Tang dynasty.
Over a thousand poems were attributed to Li Po, lots of them unpublished. This new assortment comprises poems now not to be had in the other editions.
