Anthology of Chinese Literature by Stephen Owen

Book Description

This collection of over 600 pieces, translated with great clarity and sense of the original, presents the tradition in historical and aesthetic context. Moving roughly chronologically through the tradition, An Anthology of Chinese Literature gathers texts in a variety of genres-songs, letters, anecdotes, poetry, political oratory, plays, traditional literary theory, and more-to show how the essential texts build on and echo each other. Coupled with highly readable commentary, this innovative structure uniquely highlights the interplay among Chinese literature, culture, and history.

An account of three thousand years of Chinese literature accessible to non-specialist readers as well as scholars and students.

Late Tang by Stephen Owen Late Tang, Paperback (March 2009)

The poetry of the Late Tang often looked backward, and many poets of the period distinguished themselves through the intensity of their retrospective gaze. Chinese poets had always looked backward to some degree, but for many Late Tang poets the echoes and traces of the past had a singular aura. This book presents the literary history of the Tang.

Making of Early Chinese Classical Poetry by Stephen Owen Making of Early Chinese Classical Poetry, Hardback (October 2006)

Adopts a double approach to the poetry composed between the end of the 1st Century BC and the 3rd Century AD. This book examines extant material from this period synchronically with some poems attached to authors and some not. It argues that this was 'one poetry,' created from a shared poetic repertoire and compositional practices.
