2. ‘This most beloved Chinese poem is deceptively simple and
effortlessly crystalline; Turner admits “[i]t is the most difficult
poem I ever tried. It is so simple and natural that translating it is
like trying to dye a rose-leaf ” (Turner, 1989, p. xxvi). Effortless
simplicity and naturalness, soft touch and deep feeling are indeed the
poem’s core artistic qualities and the yardstick by which the
renditions are to be gauged.’ Kwong, C. (2020) Translating Classical
