In this "guided" anthology, experts lead students through the major genres and eras of Chinese poetry from antiquity to the early twentieth century. The volume features more than 140 famous poems representing the best examples of shi, sao, fu, ci, and qupoetry, and is chronologically divided into six sections. Each chapter is prepared by a scholar who specializes in a particular period or genre. Poems are presented in Chinese and English and are accompanied by a tone-marked romanized version. Sound recording is available online free of charge. Each poem is followed by an explanation of Chinese linguistic and poetic conventions and recommended reading strategies for a true appreciation of Chinese poetry. An extensive table of contents facilitates an in-depth exploration of important thematic and formal issues, and the common themes, forms, and prosody of Chinese poetry are also discussed in a brief but comprehensive introduction.

Zong-qi Cai is professor of Chinese and comparative literature at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He is the author of The Matrix of Lyric Transformation: Poetic Modes and Self-Presentation in Early Chinese Pentasyllabic Poetry(Michigan, 1996) and Configurations of Comparative Poetics: Three Perspectives on Western and Chinese Literary Criticism(Hawai'i, 2002), and is the editor of A Chinese Literary Mind: Culture, Creativity, and Rhetoric in Wenxin dialong(Stanford, 2001) and Chinese Aesthetics: The Ordering of Literature, the Arts, and the Universe in the Six Dynasties(Hawai'i, 2004).
