The erudite translation of the Four Chinese Classics provide a rigorous foundation for understanding the treasured poems, analects and enigmatic writings in a manner accessible to the non-Chinese reader. There may be more poetic and equally mysterious versions.

Excellent book of classicsReviewed in Canada on 9 October 2019
A book of four Chinese classics that are fairly well known in the west but an excellent collection to own and to read. Decently translated and excellent compilation. It’s a good idea to educate yourself in this day of expanding globalization. Help understand the differences and sames of each other by reading this book of classics!
