At the time of his death in 1991, Angus C. Graham was one of the world's premier authorities on classical Chinese philosophy. Of particular significance is his corpus of publications on Taoism, the most important of which was his groundbreaking translation of more than three-fourths of the Chuang Tzu, first published in 1981 and, until recently, out of print for almost a decade. The current volume gathers together for the first time Graham's writings on the textual criticism and philosophy of the Chuang Tzu, most of which have heretofore been published in obscure sources. The most important of these are the textual notes that Graham wrote for publication with his original Chuang Tzu translation but which were never included therein. They were published by the School of Oriental and African Studies in a typescript of very limited circulation and have long been sought by devotees of Graham's translation. In this volume, Harold Roth presents an edited version of these notes along with other essays on the text, philosophy, and translation of this beloved Taoist classic. A chapter on the significance of Graham's work introduces the volume.
