The introduction is not to be missed. Yip demonstrates what Chinese poems literally say via character-by-character translation, gives examples of English translations from truly ghastly to reasonably good, discusses how & why the Chinese language works, makes a good argument for what constitutes reasonably good translation.

The format of the actual anthology is marred by excessively intrusive line numbers on the translations.

Great teaching volume.
