This concise introduction to Chinese poetry serves as a primer for English-speakers eager to expand their understanding and enjoyment of Chinese culture. James J. Y. Liu first examines the Chinese language as a medium of poetic expression and, contrary to the usual focus on the visual qualities of Chinese script, emphasizes the auditory effects of Chinese verse. He provides a succinct survey of Chinese poetry theory and concludes with his own view of poetry, based upon traditional Chinese concepts. [This] books should be read by all those interested in Chinese poetry. Achilles Fang, Poetry [This is] a significant contribution to the understanding and appreciation of Chinese poetry, lucidly presented in a way that will attract a wide audience, and offering an original synthesis of Chinese and Western views that will stimulate and inspire students of poetry everywhere. Hans H. Frankel, Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies This is a book which can be recommended without reservation to anyone who wants to explore the world of Chinese poetry in translation. James R. Hightower, Journal of Asian Studies
