Synopsis: Acknowledged to be one of the definitive versions of the influential Chinese classic, this new translation reveals the text in its full glory and recaptures the flow and power of the original writings. One of the most important books in Chinese literature, its significance has reverberated throughout the centuries since the Han dynasty. Its powerful effect on Western society is second to none in terms of non-Western books. Here the Tao Te Ching's 80 chapters of wise sayings and commentaries on the self and our relation to society are sumptuously illustrated with contemporary works of art and are viewed not only individually but as part of a unifying pattern. Text in both English and Chinese includes background on Lao Tzu, the recognized author of the Tao Te Ching, plus a brief history of Taoism. Essential reading for anyone--even those who have read previous translations--with an interest in ancient wisdom.
