One of the most widely known Asian classics, the "Tao Te Ching" offers a series of insightful spiritual observations on life and human nature. Part poetry, part paradox, always stirring and profound, the "Tao Te Ching" has been inspiring its leaders to expand their understanding of life since it was written over 2,000 years ago. Truly an edition to be treasured, here is a poetic translation of this classic by one of America's leading poets. Sam Hamill's evocative translation illuminates the "Tao Te Ching's" poetic depth in a way that penetrates the hearts of its readers. Complementing Hamill's translation are eighteen pieces of original calligraphy by the artist Kaz Tanahashi that highlight essential concepts presented in the text.
