A groundbreaking anthology of classical Chinese translations by giants of Modern American poetry. A rich compendium of translations, The New Directions Anthology of Classical Chinese Poetry is the first collection to look at Chinese poetry through its enormous influence on American poetry. Weinberger begins with Ezra Pound's Cathay (1915), and includes translations by three other major U.S. poets?William Carlos Williams, Kenneth Rexroth, Gary Snyder?and an important poet-translator-scholar, David Hinton, all of whom have long been associated with New Directions.
