The way of Lao Tzu (Tao-tê ching) by Laozi( Book )

This is a completely fresh and poetic version of the twenty-five-hundred-year-old Chinese spiritual classic, by one of America's most thought-provoking writers. Moved by a lifelong love for the Tao Te Ching, the novelist and poet Ursula K. Le Guin has been working on this version of the text since the 1950s. Scholar J.P. Seaton has added expert linguistic guidance to her work, bringing to it an equally passionate commitment to scholarly accuracy. Together they have created a translation that is unlike any seen before. Le Guin's version captures all the brilliance of Lao Tzu's poetry while conveying with immediacy and clarity the astonishing depth of his spiritual insights. It also corrects many of the distorted views of Lao Tzu's philosophy, freeing it from gender-bias and revealing its universal relevance. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the Tao Te Ching, as well as those coming to the text for the first time

The classic of the Dao : a new investigation by Keping Wang( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dao De Jing (The Book of Lao Zi) is widely read and celebrated as a Daoist classic. It is full of aphorisms that display the originality of Lao Zi's wisdom and thought-way. Written in a poetic form and literally presented in 81 chapters, the texts as a whole turn out to be suggestive, implicit and somewhat obscure in meaning; hence they are often found inspiring to venture through with responses of appreciation, but not easy to digest the key arguments in question, especially so in the case of general readers today. In order to facilitate a more fruitful reading of the classic, a new approach is therefore recommended with due consideration of the reading habit in general, thus bringing into being The Classic of the Dao: A New Investigation. This study project is noticeably characterized by a thematic rearrangement of the 81 chapters along with elaborate annotations and relevant commentary. They are offered as a result of contextual analysis and absorptive incorporation with some of the recent findings by Lao Zi scholars. All this intended to help one obtain certain insights into highlights of early Daoism as a philosophy. In addition to that, one may fell reasonably convenient and flexible to select according to onećs own interest any of the themes or topics available in the table of contents concerned, and then focus on it for spiritual nourishment, for example. All in all, the work reveals a strong initiative to make Dao De Jing more accessible and intelligible to the readersof all kinds
