Lecture on Wang Han A Song of Liangzhou by Professor Chan Yiu Nam

Wang Han A Song of Liangzhou
They sing, they drain their cups of jade,
They strum on horseback their guitars.
…Why laugh when they fall asleep drunk on the sand ? —
How many soldiers ever come home?
Translated by Witter Bynner (1929)

Chan Yiu Nam, former professor of Chinese Studies at the University of Hong Kong.
