This book is a bilingual (Chinese-English) collection of classical Chinese poems on Cold Food Festival, dating from 206 B.C.E., collected and translated by John Digby and Hong Ai Bai. “This collection of classical poems brings back to life an ancient almost forgotten celebration that once connected people to the spring season. The improvisational approach to translation makes these poems accessible to a new generation of readers both of Chinese and English poetry. As an artist working in dance and film I can appreciate the expressive universal emotions underlying the Cold Food Festival.” —Professor Hyonok Kim, Keimyung University, Daegu, Korea
