Maples in the mist

First published in 1996



Work Description

These Tang dynasty poems, translated from the Chinese, were traditionally memorized by children learning to read. Ho tells readers in the brief, intimate introduction how the book grew out of her desire to pass these vivid four-line verses on to her own children. The poems are immediate and accessible....The dreamlike world of recognition and memory in the watercolors is firmly yoked to the images in the poems.
