Adversaria Sinica free pdf Excerpt from Adversaria Sinica Chia I, born in the year 200 B.C., rose when no more than a boy to high office. Like many other notable Chinese statesmen, he suffered banishment, and died from chagrin at the early age of thirty-three. He wrote a great deal of poetry, and among his works is a piece entitled "The Owl," the opening words of which are extraordinarily suggestive of Poe's famous poem. It is to the credit of Dr. W. A. P. Martin that the similarity was first pointed out by him (North American Review for 1901, p. 857)- but with this discovery I am constrained to say that Dr. Martin's credit begins and ends. For his attempt at translation cannot be regarded as a serious contribution. It is not even a liberal paraphrase, with a few ancillary touches of the paraphrast to help out the sense, or the metre. Whole sentences of several lines, not to be found in the Chinese original, are freely inserted, and a ring of Poe's craftsmanship, faintly heard, except in a few of the opening lines, is imparted to the translation, to a quite unjustifiable extent. Thus, Dr. Martin begins his version with - Betwixt moss-covered reeking walls, An exiled poet lay -On his bed of straw reclining, Half despairing, half repining - not a single word of which is discoverable in Chia l's poem.
