    literary history gone gambling

    Translation is, for the scholar, a troubling art; it is literary history gone gambling. It was until very recently the basis of all Chinese reading, and a literate adolescent could read all but the earliest works in this tradition with little difficulty, if not always with perfect accuracy. (Stephen Owen, An Anthology of Chinese Literature)
