Item description for Willow, Wine, Mirror, Moon: Women's Poems from Tang China (Lannan Translation Selection Series) by Jeanne Larsen...

This collection of 106 poems by 44 female Tang-era poets is the most comprehensive of its kind. Poets are organized based on their status in Tang dynasty society: women of the court, women of the household, courtesans and entertainers, and women of religion. While each poet's concerns vary with their social status, common thematic threads include heartbreak and the mysteries of the natural world. Thumbnail biographies of each poet and notes regarding individual poems complete this important collection.

Jeanne Larsen has published poetry, three novels set in China, and a book of poetry translation, Brocade River Poems: Selected Works of the Tang Dynasty Courtesan Xue Tao. She teaches in the creative writing program at Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Willow, Wine, Mirror, Moon: Women's Poems from Tang China (Lannan Translation Selection Series)?

Incredible  Sep 2, 2006
What Ms. Larsen began in "Brocade River Poems: Selected Work of the Tang Dynasty Courtesan Xue Tao" continues in this wonderful, slim and accessible volume. There is so much more to Tang Dynasty poetry then Li Po and Du Fu, as enjoyable as they are. Ms. Larsen's translations and exegesis of the poems of some of the female poets of the late Tang and Early Sung illustrate the humor, the depth' in fact the whole emotional range that poetry has the power to offer.
Couldn't be better.  Dec 2, 2005
Such an interesting collection. These poems are beautifully translated. Jeanne Larsen is a genius.
