For Selected Poems of Su Tung-P'o, Su Tung-Po

"An extraordinary book of poems... Less aesthetically rigid than earlier Chinese poets, he sought inspiration both in issues of philosophical complexity and matters of everyday life. This expansiveness, combined with a sophisticated sense of image and metaphor, created a body of work that is strikingly modern."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Burton Watson is one of the most accomplished translators of Chinese literature in this century... Anyone interested in acquiring a taste for Sung-dynasty poetry and its greatest practitioner will want to read this volume."—Choice

"The Selected Poems of Su Tung-p'o are stunning evocations of exquisite moments of melancholy glimpsed in the midst of the din of daily life."—New York Observer
