9780231096775: Classical Chinese Literature

The summation of more than two thousand years of one of the world's most august literary traditions, this volume also represents the achievements of four hundred years of Western scholarship on China. The selections include poetry, drama, fiction, songs, biographies, and works of early Chinese philosophy and history rendered in English by the most renowned translators of classical Chinese literature: Arthur Waley, Ezra Pound, David Hawkes, James Legge, Burton Watson, Stephen Owen, Cyril Birch, A. C. Graham, Witter Bynner, Kenneth Rexroth, and others.

Arranged chronologically and by genre, each chapter is introduced by definitive quotes and brief introductions chosen from classic Western sinological treatises. Beginning with discussions of the origins of the Chinese writing system and selections from the earliest "genre" of Chinese literature―the Oracle Bone inscriptions―the book then proceeds with selections from:

early myths and legends;

the earliest anthology of Chinese poetry, the Book of Songs;

early narrative and philosophy, including the I Ching, Tao-te Ching, and the Analects of Confucius;

rhapsodies, historical writings, magical biographies, ballads, poetry, and miscellaneous prose from the Han and Six Dynasties period;

the court poetry of the Southern Dynasties;

the finest gems of Tang poetry; and

lyrics, stories, and tales of the Sui, Tang, and Five Dynasties eras.

Special highlights include individual chapters covering each of the luminaries of Tang poetry: Wang Wei, Li Bo, Du Fu, and Bo Juyi; early literary criticism; women poets from the first to the tenth century C.E.; and the poetry of Zen and the Tao.

Bibliographies, explanatory notes, copious illustrations, a chronology of major dynasties, and two-way romanization tables coordinating the Wade-Giles and pinyin transliteration systems provide helpful tools to aid students, teachers, and general readers in exploring this rich tradition of world literature.

Book Description:

The summation of more than two thousand years of one of the world's most august literary traditions, this volume also represents the achievements of four hundred years of Western scholarship on China. The anthology includes over a thousand selections from the most renowned translators―including Ezra Pound, Cyril Birch, and Burton Watson.

From the Back Cover:

This landmark anthology of classical Chinese literature is the most comprehensive English-language collection available, presenting more than a thousand selections from two thousand years of Chinese literature in classic translations by the luminaries of the field -- Arthur Waley, Ezra Pound, David Hawkes, James Legge, Burton Watson, Stephen Owen, Cyril Birch, A. C. Graham, Witter Bynner, Kenneth Rexroth, and others.

John Minford and Joseph S. M. Lau have selected writings ranging from the earliest examples of Chinese writing, the Oracle Bone inscriptions, to the poems and lyrics of the Tang and Five Dynasties periods. Chronologically arranged by genre, each section is introduced with quotes by preeminent observers of China across the ages -- from Francis Bacon to Bernhard Karlgren, from Liu Xie to Lu Xun.

Encompassing poetry, drama, fiction, songs, biographies, and works of early Chinese philosophy and history, Classical Chinese Literature is a treasury of the finest gems from one of the richest traditions of world literature.
