By David Hinton
But this is often an historic textual content that yields an incredibly glossy impact. In daring and startling prose, David Hinton's translation captures the "zany texture and philosophical abandon" of the unique. the internal Chapters' fantastical passages — during which even birds and timber train us what they recognize supply up a wild menagerie of characters, freewheeling play with language, and surreal humor. And interwoven with Chuang Tzu's sharp guide at the Tao are short-short tales which are usually tough and ribald, wealthy with satire and paradox.
On their inner most point, the internal Chapters are a meditation at the mysteries of data itself. "Chuang Tzu's propositions," the translator's creation reminds us, "seem to be in consistent transformation, for he deploys phrases and ideas merely to loose us of phrases and concepts." Hinton's very important new translation makes this historical textual content from the golden age of chinese language philosophy come alive for modern readers.
