Join Red Pine for readings of poems by Wei Ying-wu (737--791), who is considered one of the great poets of the T'ang Dynasty, ranked alongside such poets as Tu Fu, Li Pai, and Wang Wei. Born into an aristocratic family in decline, Wei served in several government posts without distinction. He disdained the literary establishment of his day and fashioned a poetic style counter to the mainstream: one of profound simplicity centered in the natural world. Red Pine (a.k.a. Bill Porter) is one of the world's leading translators of Chinese literary and religious texts. His body of work includes "Poems of the Masters," "The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain," "The Heart Sutra," Lao-tzu's Taoteching, and many more. This program is presented in partnership with The Elliott Bay Book Company. This event is supported by Poets & Writers, Inc.
