An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
There's something incredibly moving, and electrifying, to read a poem from the "Chinese Book of Odes", written around 500 B.C, and to feel both our distance from and our closeness to the past, and the moon itself: I climbed the hill just as the new moon showed, I saw him coming on the southern road. My heart lays down its load. In collecting together poems such as these - poems that span continents and centuries - "To The Moon" shows what it is to be human; to love, to lose, to dream and to hope. The poems it contains give us a real and profound sense of our time on this planet, and the pleasures they offer are - like space itself - infinite.
