Li Shan-fu: The Temple of Hsiang Yü — 李山甫《项羽庙》with English Translations





The Temple of Hsiang Yü1

Li Shan-fu

Captive or king, it’s all a matter of chance.

Why ashamed to see Han boats on the river?

Contesting for the empire, the world wasn’t big enough;

Would you now care for offerings of paper money from a traveler?

1. Hsiang Yü (232-202 B.C), the defeated king of Ch’u.

(Irving Y. Lo 译)
