Summary:
"Previously available only as a limited edition, Henri Michaux's Ideograms in China is now available as a New Directions paperback. Translated by the American poet Gustaf Sobin, this long, illustrated and annotated prose poem was originally written as an introduction to Leon Chang's La calligraphie chinoise (1971), a work that now stands as an important complement to Pound and Ernest Fenollosa's classic study, The Chinese Written Character as a Medium for Poetry."--BOOK JACKET.
