This is an anthology of ancient Chinese poems from the famous Tang, Song, and Qing dynasty poets that were translated showing similar rhyming and rhythmic constructions not very different from the versification in the West. Hence, it may be shown that versification in poetry is a universal practice occurring both in the East and the West, the common goal of which has been identified as the attainment of the supreme mathematical relationships--the ultimate expression of beauty. The translated poems still retain some of the incredible charm in the original native forms.
