I’ve always enjoyed Chinese poetry (in translation at least, as I am unable to read Chinese) by Li-Bai and others. It’s been a while since I last spent time reading poetry so I decided I would like to find some on the internet so I could convert them for my PDA (I’ve been reading texts on it quite a bit lately). I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of websites having translations of “300 Tang Poems” (here and here). I’m looking very forward to exploring these poems once again. =)
Cool you are into Li Bai. My maternal grandfather was good friends with Li Bai, and also his editor.
Maybe we’re thinking of a different Li Bai as the one I was talking about was from like 701-762 AD (according to Wikipedia at least). I don’t know much about another Li Bai from the past hundred years.
But it’s made to be sung! Where can I buy a CD with that?
