Joy and Sorrow – Songs of Ancient China: A New Translation of Shi Jing Guo Feng

English/Chinese | January 15, 2016 | ISBN: 1845197925 | EPUB | 230 Pages | 5.8 MB
The Shi Jing is the oldest anthology of Chinese songs. It contains 305 songs of ancient China, composed in the 12th to 7th century BCE. The collection is divided into four parts. The present work is a translation of its first part, namely Guo Feng, which translates as “songs of states” within the Zhou kingdom (1122-255 BCE).
Ha Poong Kim’s translation has incorporated the results of some recent Japanese studies which question the traditional, Confucian approach to the text, thereby recovering the original meaning of many songs in the Guo Feng. It is hoped that this Chinese-English Bilingual Edition makes the voices of joys and sorrows of this ancient land audible to a modern readership, not only in the West but also in China as well.
