I obtained this book many years ago as a college student; I took a class on Chinese Literature with a visiting professor from one of the top universities there. It was a interesting course, and we barely scratched the surface of this book in a semester.

The Anthology runs the gamut from ancient times to 18th century; from poetry and proverbs to Yuan drama. The translations are magnificent, keeping the spirit of the Chinese language while making the words clear in vibrant and colorful English.
