Book by Richter Antje


Future scholars dealing with any of these topics and questions will certainly not only be encouraged by Richter's book to intensify research on Chinese letters, but they will also benefit greatly from the solid and comprehensive groundwork provided by this important introduction. -- Kathrin Leese-Messing * Asiatische Studien/ Etudes Asiatiques * This is a fine piece of work. . . . Clear, unpretentious, and worth hearing. . . . It is recommended without reservation. -- David Prager Branner * The Historian * Antje Richter's book provides invaluable information about this under-studied genre of writing. . . . This book is not just a much-needed addition to the field of early medieval literature, but its discussion of letter writing and epistolary culture also sheds light on social and cultural aspects of this period that are otherwise difficult to know. . . . It should be of interest to anyone who studies pre-modern epistolary culture, as well as the literature, culture, and society of early medieval China. -- Qiulei Hu * Journal of the American Oriental Society * Richter's frequent comparisons of the culture of letter-writing in early medieval China and the Western world place Chinese letter-writing in a global context. . . . [A] solid study on letters and epistolary culture in early medieval China. She makes important contributions to the field of early medieval Chinese cultural studies in general, and to the understanding of letters as a genre as well as to the analysis of the textual characteristics of personal letters in particular. -- Sujane Wu * Journal of Asian Studies *
