Finding Them Gone: Visiting China's Poets of the Past by Bill Porter / Red Pine
Finding Them Gone: Visiting China's Poets of the Past by Bill Porter / Red Pine


 
Combining travelogue, translations, history, and personal stories, this intimate and fast-paced tour of modern China celebrates inspirational landscapes and presents new translations of classical poems. Illustrated with over one hundred photographs and two hundred classical poems, many of which have never before appeared in English translation, Finding Them Gone celebrates the love of travel and an irrepressible exuberance for poetry.

"The graves of the poets I'd been visiting were so different. Some were simple, some palatial, some had been plowed under by farmers, and others had been reduced to trash pits. Their poems, though, had survived ... Poetry is transcendent. We carry it in our hearts and find it there when we have forgotten everything else."
