Summary: Library Journal greeted the original edition of this anthology with high praise, saying "this is a superb collection with well-written introductory essays, excellent examples of various literary forms, and translations accessible to the layman, student and scholar." Now Alan Velie has prepared an exciting revised edition with a contemporary slant.
