This book is dedicated to the memory of David Hawkes (1923-2009). We remember him as a pre-eminent translator and interpreter of Chinese literature into English, his most famous work being the translation of the classic 18th century Chinese novel, The Hongloumeng or The Story of the Stone. The first part of the book consists of studies on him and his works, the second part on the art of translation into English from Chinese literature; all the articles are penned by scholars in the field from Britain, America, Australia and Hong Kong.
