THE LATE POEMS OF MENG CHIAO: Translated by David Hinton

Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover. "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." Octavo. Original cloth binding, with gilt titles. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with some mild rubbing. Near fine / Near fine. Item #68550
