Superb translations of the work of the great Chinese hermit sage Han Shan, also known as Cold Mountain, one of the greatest poets of the T'ang dynasty.

These poems were written twelve hundred years ago on the rocks, trees, and temple walls of China's Tientai mountains. The poet was Han Shan, a Taoist/Buddhist hermit who begged for food at temples, often sang and drank with cowherds, and became an immortal figure in the history of Chinese literature and Zen.

This authoritative, bilingual - English and Chinese - edition significantly revises and expands upon a version that originally appeared in 1983. It presents all of Cold Mountain's surving poems - as well as poems by two of his colleagues, Feng-kan or Big Stick, and Shih-te or Pickup - and includes a new introduction, comprehensive notes, and photos of the caves and surrounding area where Cold Mountain lived.

"Red Pine has given us the first full collection of Han Shan's songs in an idiom that is clear, graceful, and neutral enough to last beyond a generation. The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain is a considerable performance and a truly valuable book." The Bloomsbury Review.
