Modern Chinese Poetry: An Introduction.
Lin, Julia C.
This study examines the rise and development of the new genre of Chinese poetry, from 1919 to the present, focusing on the period's major poets and several lesser poets. Style, themes, characteristic techniques, faults and virtues, major concerns, and important contributions of each poet are discussed. Part 1, which covers the period before 1917, discusses tradition and transition. Part 2, which covers the years from 1917-37, considers the pioneers, the formalists, and the symbolists. Part 3, which deals with 1937-49 and after, discusses the war period and the rise of "Proletarian" poetry, and poetry after 1949. A selected bibliography of books of and about Chinese poetry is included. (LL)
