Item description for A Birthday Book for Brother Stone: For David Hawkes, at Eighty by Rachel May...

David Hawkes, has been described by a distinguished fellow sinologist as "the best living translator in our field, as well as one of the nicest people to have graced our profession". Celebrating his eightieth birthday, this unusual and varied Birthday Book (a Festschrift with a difference) brings together over forty of David's friends, students, colleagues and admirers from all over the world to wish him a happy birthday, and to celebrate the man, and his exceptional scholarly and creative achievements.
This book is divided into three parts. The first part consists of informal reminiscences, poems and personal contributions of various kinds; the second part brings together essays, both sinological and general; the third and last part consists of translations. The volume is embellished by a number of photographs, paintings, and pieces of calligraphy.
