Tao Te Ching by Lao zi

Book Description

No other English translation of this greatest of the Chinese classics can match Ursula Le Guin's striking new version. Le Guin, best known for thought-provoking science fiction novels that have helped to transform the genre, has studied the "Tao Te Ching " for more than forty years. She has consulted the literal translations and worked with Chinese scholars to develop a version that lets the ancient text speak in a fresh way to modern people, while remaining faithful to the poetic beauty of the work. Avoiding scholarly interpretations and esoteric Taoist insights, she has revealed the "Tao Te Ching "'s immediate relevance and power, its depth and refreshing humor, in a way that shows better than ever before why it has been so much loved for more than 2,500 years. Included are Le Guin's own personal commentary and notes on the text. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the "Tao Te Ching " as well as those coming to the text for the first time.

Books By Author Lao zi

Daodejing by Lao zi Daodejing, Paperback (April 2016)

These 81 brief poems from the 5th century BCE make up a foundational text in world culture. Martyn Crucefix's superb new versions in English reflect - for the very first time - the radical fluidity of the original Chinese texts as well as placing the mysterious 'dark' feminine power at their heart.

Tao Te Ching by Lao zi Tao Te Ching, Paperback (December 2001)

Lao Tzu's "Tao Te Ching" is an important text in Chinese spirituality. David Hinton's translation aims to offer new interpretations of the text, revealing it as a work of deep environmental and feminist thought.

Hua Hu Ching by Lao zi Hua Hu Ching, Paperback (April 1995)

This is one of the rarest yet most accessible of the Chinese wisdom texts, and a companion to Tao Te Ching. Most likely written in the middle of the first millennium BCE, it survived through oral transmission. It takes the form of 81 dialogues between the sage Lao Tzu and an unnamed prince of China.
