Biography & Memoir • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This biography of one of China's most influential poets, Li Bai, is written by Chinese-American poet and novelist Ha Jin. Ha Jin creates a portrait of Li Bai as if the poet were one of his characters. Narrator David Shih is an engaging choice for this well-researched work. He recounts the significance of Li Bai's work, which was unrecognized for its genius during his lifetime. Shih does so with a gentle, compassionate delivery that keeps us engaged with the intricacies of Chinese society in the eighth century. For fans of history, culture, and poetry, this will be a title that lingers on the playlist to return to time and again. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
