Burton Watson, 1925-2017 (1)

More notes on Burton Watson, the great translator and scholar, who just passed away.




I myself only spoke to him once. But I have enjoyed his work tremendously over the years, and also used it in teaching. It shines with the same generosity that came across in his voice that one time.
