Product description


“Comparable to Ezra Pound's Cathay, Segalen's book is a fascinating read in cross-cultural poetics. This new translation combines impeccable scholarship with great sensitivity to Segalen's odd exoticism.” (Yunte Huang, author of Cribs and Transpacific Displacement)

“Students of anthropology, sinology, poetry, modernism, and translation will welcome this elegant translation. This is a critical edition of the first order, carefully conceived and meticulously researched.” (Tom Conley, Abbott Lawrence Lowell Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures, Harvard University)
