This was much more of an effortless read than I feared it would be. What was the most striking is just how similar the fears and hopes for society were 2,000 - 2,500 years ago in a totally alien world were to our own today. And theres a poem about losing your hair that made me feel better about the whole thing for about 10 minutes - a true accomplishment.Some of the imagery and poetry is astonishing. With that power and feeling evident in a translation, one can only wonder at its potency in real Chinese.
