In the hands of Jonathan Star, the eighty-one verses of the Tao Te Ching resound with the elegant, simple images and all-penetrating ideas that have made this ancient work a keystone of the world's wisdom literature.
In his critically acclaimed guidebook, Tao Te Ching- The Definitive Edition, translator-scholar Star provided a comprehensive codex to the ancient Chinese masterpiece - as well as a fresh literary translation, which, of its own accord, became a favorite among readers and teachers. Now, in this concise volume, readers can discover Star's literary adaptation on its own, and find in it a foundation of wisdom to turn to again and again.
'It would be hard to find a fresh approach to a text that ranks only behind the Bible as the most widely translated book in the world, but Star achieves that goal.'Napra ReView
Jonathan Star has been widely acclaimed for his translations of Rumi, Hafez, the poet-saints of India, and the Christian mystics. He is the author of the celebrated Tao Te Ching- The Definitive Edition, Rumi- In the Arms of the Beloved, and other books. Star live in upstate New York.
