[CHIN 255] Masterpieces of Chinese Literature II: Song to the Present
This course is a continuation of Chinese 250. We follow the development of the poetic tradition after Tang, reading representative works in the ci [lyric] and qu [aria] forms. We also chart the rise of vernacular narrative and the drama. Our survey of modern Chinese fiction and poetry post 1890 assesses the impact of Western models and the persistence of traditional themes and attitudes. Taught in English.
