Poem on a Plane Tree’s Leaf is a selection of poems from a comprehensive collection of works written by women poets of the Tang Dynasty (618-907 C.E) originally published in 2009 by the Association of Stories in Macao. Along with little known authors of the period, some of the most famous (including Li Ye, Yu Xuanji and Xue Tao) are represented here in new translations by Christopher Kelen, Hilda Tam, Song Zijiang, Iris Fan, and Carol Ting, each accompanied by the Chinese original.
