Chinese Literature - The Verses of Chu (Chuci)

Martin Kern

Through close readings of original sources, we analyze the anthology of the Verses of Chu (Chuci) in its poetic, historical, and hermeneutic dimensions. Drawing on a wider range of early historical, literary, and philosophical texts, we contextualize the songs in late Warring States and early Han literary and intellectual culture. In addition, we trace the anthology's poetic reception in medieval times as well as its history of scholarship from the Han Dynasty to the present.
