This is exactly why I thought the Penguin Little Black classics would be great. This edition contains three poets from the Tang Dynasty and I will be the first to admit that it wasn’t something that I would have usually picked.
But I’m very glad that I read it now, because I was most pleasantly surprised by the deceptive simplicity of many of the poems. They were really quite charming. In honesty, I liked all three the poets, and usually I’m not even that much into poetry.
Certainly recommended! I might even look for a longer collection of their poems.
