Tao Qian and the Chinese Poetic Tradition

The Quest for Cultural Identity
Volume 66
Charles Yim-tze Kwong
An exploration of the life and poetry of Tao Qian through close readings and cultural and political analysis

Description

While Tao Qian’s unique position in Chinese literature is uncontested, there has been much debate over the relationship between Tao’s poetry and the life he lived and over the poet’s place within the literary and intellectual traditions of his time. Kwong’s nuanced analysis draws upon the full range of traditional Chinese literary scholarship and intellectual history as well as recent advances in Western literary criticism, hermeneutics, and comparative literature.
Charles Yum-tze KWONG is Professor of Chinese, Professor of Translation and Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at Lingnan University.
