Chaves 2017
Cave of the Immortals: The Poetry and Prose of Bamboo Painter Wen Tong (1019-1079), Warren, CT: Floating World Editions, 2017.
 
Professor Jonathan Chaves’ most recent book, Cave of the Immortals, is the first in any Western language to present poetry and prose by famed bamboo painter, Wen Tong (1019-1079). A new voice from the 11th century, being heard for the first time, it is full of wonderful surprises. The introduction is an essay in the cultural history of his period, the Northern Sung (or Song) Dynasty, or the 11th century.
