Next : The Book of Poetry, or Shi Jing

Leaping across the expanse of Europe and Asia to the Middle Kingdom and one of the Five Classics : The Book of Poetry, or Shi jing. Over 300 poems is a big ask, so my copy is a selection of about 50 only, but in a beautifully illustrated copy published by China Intercontinental Press, titled Selections from the Book of Poetry : illustrated edition (ISBN 9787508508870). I will try to scan some of the paintings to go alongside my review in the next post.
