Jade Mirror

"A delectable selection of poems by China's greatest women poets in translations of exquisite beauty. A rare achievement!"--Red Pine "Jade Mirror's particular strength comes from the fact that all of its fine translators bring to the work different senses of where poetry is to be found in the originals as well present some of the finest poetic translation of the last twenty years."--Jerome Seaton This anthology spans twenty-five hundred years of writing by women. These are voices that were most often left out of the official anthologies and represent a hidden tradition that deserves a wider audience.
