Imitating Ho Chi Minh

Abstract

Famous- or infamous- statesmen are not above indulging in word games. Ho Chi Minh, President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, while a prisoner in China, circa 1943, whiled his time away by writing poems. He wrote them in classical Chinese, not in Vietnamese, lest his jailers become suspicious. They have been translated into English in the cited work.
