A Feast of Lanterns, by L. Cranmer-Byng, , at sacred-texts.com
I am indebted to the editors of The Nation, The English Review, and The Poetry Review, for their kind permission to reproduce several of the poems included in the book. My thanks are also due to Dr. Lionel Giles for the great help and assistance he has given me, notably in translations from Li Po and Po Chü-i, also to Mr. H. H. Harding for his valuable translations of many selections from the Sung poets. I owe the inclusion of Yuan Mei's last poem on the last page to the late Mr. Ken Hoshino, translator of Kaibara Ekkens Way of Contentment in this series.
