Read from May 30, 2010 to May 29, 2014 — I own a copy

One of our sons studies Chinese, so for fun I recently pulled this volume from our shelves and we are reading a poem a night, after grace, just as we begin eating dinner. Who could be a better companion for our evenings than Du Fu (712 - 770)? That river-gazer, that wine connoisseur, that lute-player, friend, philosopher, observer-of-seasons. We marvel at the vitality of his voice, nearly 1300 years later. We're BIG Du Fu fans!
