 Spirit of Chinese Poetics (View larger image)

This book looks into some highlights of Chinese poetics from a historical and transcultural perspective. It carries out an in-depth discussion of such thematic topics as Confucius’ expectation of poetry in education, Mozi and Xunzi on musical functions, Lie Xie’s critical illumination of poetic styles, Zhu Xi’s moralistic view of poetry, the poetic wisdom in the zen enlightenment, Wang Guowei’s aesthetic criticism of the poetic state par excellence, and Lu Xun’s sublime poetics of maratic type. All this is conducted through textual and contextual analysis in order to facilitate a new rediscovery and creative synthesis.
