Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, David Hinton

Lao Tzus Tao Te Ching is not only the single most important text in Chinese spirituality, it is probably the most influential spiritual text in human history. In the past, virtually all translations of this text have been produced either by sinologists having little poetic facility in English, or by writers having no ability to read the original Chinese. David Hintons fluency in ancient Chinese and his award-winning poetic ability provide both of these essential qualifications. Together, they allow a breathtaking new translation that reveals how remarkably current and even innovative this text is after 2500 years. Having translated a wide range of ancient Chinese poets and philosophers, Hinton is uniquely qualified to offer the definitive contemporary version of the Tao Te Ching in English, rendering it with both philosophical rigor and poetic elegance. And like all of his translations, Hintons translation of the Tao Te Ching is mind-opening. It adds new dimensions to this text, revealing it as the originary text of deep environmental and feminist thought.--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
