    Congratulations, Mr. Hook!

    I also like these Chinese poems, 李清照「南歌子」, 王維「竹里館」 and 杜牧「清明」. It is quite refreshing for me to read these familiar poems in English verse. Thank you for your translation!

    I’m also impressed other winners’ works, especially, Hadyn’s work on Joséphin Soulary’s sonnet. I recently come to know rather neglected his name and work in the shadow of Baudelaire. As I’ve just started to read his Sonnets humouristiques, I’m very glad to see its English translation here. Thank you for your work and please keep posting Soulary’s sonnets here…
