bookshelves: 2015, graphic-novels

I have long been a huge fan of the poetry of Han Shan and this beautifully illustrated graphic novel does the poems and the mythology justice. Rather than try to fill in the gaps of what we don't know about these two, the book relies heavily on what we do, mostly gleaned from the poems, many of which are included. A good introduction for those unfamiliar, a nice take on the poems for those already knowledgeable.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this graphic novel through Netgalley. The book will be published April 14, 2015.]
