Something very different.
Tao Te Ching, by Lao-Tzu
a translation for the public domain by j.h.mcdonald
read for LibriVox dot org by Dale Grothmann

Poetry comes in all shapes and sizes, so a translation can have its own character, but my second thoughts are about the eligibility of the text. I try to stay away from anything post 1925 that is not cleared by gutenberg.org. Is this translation published in the public domain by a publishing house?Grothmann wrote: ↑May 25th, 2020, 11:55 amHi:
I am beginning to have second thoughts about Tao Te Ching Cha. 11. Translating poetry from one language to another, and keeping any semblance of meter or structure is difficult enough, but keeping the essential meaning is nearly impossible. This comes the closest I can find, in those translations which are in Public Domain. See what you think.
