Book Synopsis
Insight into the Chinese Mind Series.

Ezra Pound

"Cathay is a collection of poems written by the American poet Ezra Pound and published in 1915. The book is a translation of Chinese poetry, specifically the works of Li Po, Tu Fu, and other poets from the Tang Dynasty. Pound's translations were among the first to introduce Chinese poetry to the Western world, and his work has since been recognized as a major influence on modernist poetry. The poems in Cathay are characterized by their spare, imagistic language and their focus on nature, love, and the transience of life. The book includes some of Pound's most famous translations, such as ""The River-Merchant's A Letter"" and ""In a Station of the Metro."" Overall, Cathay is a landmark work of poetry translation and a significant contribution to the development of modernist poetry."
