Summary The most comprehensive anthology of Chinese poetry available in English today. Contains the work of more than 140 poets, from the 12th century B.C. to the moderns.
Contents Part I. In the beginning: the legacy of Shih and Sao (12th century B.C.-3rd century B.C.) -- Part II. A world fragmented: multiple voices in a period of intellectual formation (3rd century B.C-A.D. 6th century) -- Part III. Expanding horizons and the full flowering of the Shih (during the T'ang Dynasty, 618-907) -- Part IV. Cross-pollination: the predominance of the Tz'u, or lyric meters (in the five dynasties of the Sung eras, 10th-13th centuries) -- Part V. The rise of the San-ch', or song-poems (in the Mongol-ruled society, 1234-1368) -- Part VI. In the long tradition: accommodation and challenge (Ming, 1368-1644; Ch'ing, 1644-1911; The Republic, 1912- ).
