Really good read. Definitely will require multiple read-throughs to let each chapter sink in, though. This is the only version of the Tao Te Ching I've ever read, so I don't have others to compare it to, but that said, I enjoyed Le Guin's personal rendition of the text, and appreciated her aim to create a version with more inclusive language than other translations/renditions.I'm trying to think of how to rate this book. Like, I literally can't think of how, or by what standards I'm supposed to judge it. It's like poetry books. It's not as simple as marking my level of enjoyment. Unlike novels, I guess. Maybe because they're usually less open to interpretation?Eh. Whatever.
