David Hawkes (1923–2009) was for many years a professor of Chinese and later a research fellow at Oxford University. His translations included the second-century anthology The Songs of the South
and a magisterial multivolume version of Cao Xueqin’s eighteenth-century novel, The Story of the Stone
(The Dream of the Red Chamber
), considered by many to be the greatest translation into English of Chinese prose.
