Instructor Andrew Plaks
Course Description Prerequisites: Some experience with Classical Chinese required. Instructor will assist students with a less firm command of Classical Chinese on an individual basis. In this course, we will read and analyze some of the most important writings about the nature and aesthetics of literature in the Chinese tradition, many of them treasured as great literary works in their own right. We will proceed chronologically, from some of the earliest texts dealing with poetic theory and practice through the pre-imperial and dynastic periods, up to the 20th century, considering such perennial issues as subjectivity/objectivity, expressivity and containing patterns of structure and texture, and the poetics of prose.
