What is the relationship between cloud chamber⁠—a particle detector used for visualizing the passage of ionizing radiation—and poems in Chinese Tang and Song Dynasties? Tim Clissold presented in his latest English-Chinese book Cloud Chamber a British perspective and a brand-new approach to appreciate Chinese culture, in particular ancient Chinese poems. The book selects 70 ancient Chinese poems with English translation that are not only faithful to the original text but also able to conjure up imagery that are easy for foreigners to understand.
