Stephen Bokenkamp’s project is an annotated translation of the Declarations of the Perfected, a collection of divine poetic instructions received by the Daoist Yang Xi (330–ca. 386). These fragments of revealed literature were collected by the eminent scholar Tao Hongjing (456– 536), who added a history and provided a scholarly apparatus.
