Promotional Information

It is a gem of a work following on the Chuang Tzu, in a somewhat darker tone, yet punctuated with a most extraordinary humor. The modernity of this text... is astonishing...[A.C. Graham] is one of the most distinguished Sinologists working today. -- Irene Bloom, Columbia University

About the Author

A.C. Graham is Professor Emeritus of the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Among his many translations and writings are Chuang-tzu: The Seven Inner Chapters and Other Writings from the Book of Chuang-tzu and Reason and Spontaneity.

Reviews

"The "Lieh-tzu" ranks with the "Lao Tzu" and "Chuang Tzu" as one of the most eloquent and influential expositions of Taois philosophy. This definitive translation by Professor Graham does full justice to the subtlety of thought and literary effectiveness of the text." -- Burton Watson
