I have been in search of a poem.. for a little while now. The poem was written by cao pi.. if i recall right..i cant at hand remember who it was written to... <thinking lady zhen??> after her death.. although i maybe mistaken.. i know very little about this but i came across a reference to it a month or two ago... so that is why my knowledge of it is sketchy.... but if any one has the slightest idea what i am talking about.. could someone please PM it to me or post it here?

Cao Zhi's "Goddess of the Luo River" or some variation thereof. I'm not aware of any translations though, sorry. :oops:

A translation was posted on these very forums <a href="http://the-scholars.com/viewtopic.php?p=155678#155678">here</a>. There are other Cao poems in that thread as well.

Enjoy.

Here are some books i found while doing a school report on Bushido


Bushido: The Soul of Japan by Inazo Nitobe

Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo

A lot of online books here. It is a foreign site (Israeli), so I don't think it is breaking any rules. Either way, what program should I use to read the books?
