  • These exquisite brief chapters have used the ink of words to describe the sea of ink that was the life of the Chinese painter Bada Shanren They are delicate brush strokes that convey the movement of a life that became one with art It is a poetic reflection of the minimalist beauty of the art of a painter who was committed to capturing the essence of nature with a single brushstroke.


  • This little book is about a 17th century prince who becomes a monk, and then a painter and calligrapher It s a series of cameos about the artist Bada Shanren flitting from one era of his life to the next Events fly past with an amorphous stamping of a moment in time not unlike the infinitely delicate paintings which are illustrated and described in this beautiful book The book flits though Shanren s life He often changes his name Zhu Da, Chunanqu, Xuege, Geshan, and finally Bada Shanren symbolic [...]


  • In this small book Sea Of Ink Richard Weihe portrays the painter and calligrapher Bada Shanren, a prince of the Chinese Ming Dynasty in the 17th century As a series of sketches in black ink and in brief chapters Weihe outlines the steps in the life of a man who was a prince with a promised bright future, a fugitive, a Buddhist monk and founder of a monastery, a vagabond and considered mad A man who takes during his lifetime many different names in a long spiritual quest materialized by his ink d [...]


  • An historical novel and poetic meditation by a German writer concerning the life of a seventeenth century Chinese artist and calligrapher This layering of time, identity and culture is an echo of the hero s life, which, shaped by the upheavals of that period in Chinese history, finds him, as a member of a violently deposed ruling clan, fleeing his home, losing his family and entering a long period of monastic exile, during which he is tutored in the spiritual mysteries of applying ink to paper a [...]


  • The fictionalized biography of a 17th Century Chinese painter, this is a gorgeous book, lush and sparse at once What I enjoyed most was the tightening scope of the novel it begins with the broad sweep of history and large political changes occurring in China through war and invasion, but moves ever inward from there As the painter protagonist Shanren Badu strips away and his external life to focus on his art and the perfection of his inked lines, the novel becomes equally focused and compresse [...]


  • More of a meditation on how to find the Way, Tao, but also a description of any artist s quest for perfection, that yearning to express the inexpressible, to pin down nature and reality but also one s soul Also an interesting portrayal of a troubled period in Chinese history although that is almost secondary but so much of the artist s way of life is determined by those events.


  • Peirene Press Two hour books to be devoured in a single sitting Literary cinema for those fatigued by film.


  • The book was not entirely terrible and was it not for the pictures, I might have awarded it up to two stars Unfortunately, I believe literature and paintings to be two very different kinds of art and it is not a simple task to combine these two well I understand the sentiment to include them in the book, but in attempting this, the book was simply failing so hard that I felt not only distraught, but outright disturbed whenever there was the process of a painting coming to life described or rath [...]


  • Fifty one short chapters make up Richard Weihe s Sea of Ink, translated from the German by Jamie Bulloch The novella, complete with many wonderful pictures, portrays the life of Bada Shanren, one of the most influential Chinese painters of all times.The book sets out the tumultuous history of the period in the first chapters, using succinct sentences to present all of the relevant information without overwhelming the reader It begins in the summer of 1644, a time in which the Manchus brought the [...]


  • I ve been meaning to read one of Peirene Press s books since they first landed on Scribd a couple months ago They re a wonderful house a small, independent publisher dedicated to translating short works of excellent European fiction into English And the covers I want to frame them all I settled on Sea of Ink because its title is nearly as beautiful and evocative as the cover it graces.This quiet, lovely, novella cum biography of Bada Shanren, the eminent Chinese painter born in the 17th century, [...]


  • A brush with China under Manchu rule At TF we came across Peirene Press very early in our researches they specialise in contemporary European literature, that is thought provoking, well designed and short They have a perfect strapline from the TLS which absolutely sums up the books they produce Two hour books to be devoured in a single sitting literary cinema for those fatigued by film Click on the cover to see reviews and to find our The Sea of Ink by Richard Weihe spans much of the 17th centu [...]


  • I m honestly not sure how I feel about this novella I mean, it was interesting enough and kind of felt like a fable than anything So I was quite surprised when I found out that it was actually based on a real person from the mid 1600s And even though I chose to read the book, it was my sister who bought it originally, so I think I d like to ask her why she bought it in the first place All in all, it was an interesting little read that was entertaining enough to keep me reading hercommonplaceblo [...]


  • A beautiful and hugely enjoyable book, even if I couldn t quite bring myself to give it five stars I think the point at which I baulked was the point at which Bada Shanren and a monk find themselves discussing the happiness of fishes, as if neither of them have ever read the Zhuangzi, something that hit a false note.Nevertheless, this was a lovely read, and yet another superb translation from Peirene.


  • Beautiful and impressionistic, like a poem than a novel A little hard to get into, but worth it Full review here littlewordsreview.wordpress


  • Beautiful, elegant book about the life of painter Bada Shanren, with accompanying illustrations Striking in its simplicity, but full of depth and thoughtfulness I love these little Peireine Press books
