I can't help liking old Arthur, the (so-called ) 'Colossus of Science Fiction; his stories still read surprisingly well after all these years. According to the terms of the 'Clarke-Asimov treaty', he was to be described as the 'second-best science writer' while Asimov was to be the 'second-best SF writer'. That has a certain ring of truth to it, I must admit.

I suppose that some of his versions sound a bit mannered now, but for a long time Arthur Waley would have had to be called the principal translator of Chinese poetry into English. Pound's Cathay may have shown the way, but Waley's linguistic abilities far eclipsed his. His Monkey and Tale of Genji are also great entry texts to the world of the traditional Chinese and Japanese novel. I love the simplicity and clarity of his work.
