In this installment, we’re delighted to share three poems from the Tang and Song Dynasties translated by Lee Liyi. Accompanying the poems are lovely Chinese illustrations and notes about the poets and their historic context.
And remember, in September and beyond: read and share the translated poems you love using #NTM2017. Open your heart to new experiences and the beauty of the world, and celebrate its cultures and new voices. We hope our picks will become your new favorites. Let us know how you like them #TranslationMonth @TranslateMonth.
