Five Hundred Years of Chinese Poetry offers the only historical survey, in any language, of this important span of Chinese poetry. Written by the foremost Japanese sinologist of this century, and translated here in a lucid analogue to his famous prose style, the work provides a brief but comprehensive review of the period's literary history, a sketch of its political and social history in relation to literature, and a rendering of more than one hundred and fifty poems.

Originally published in 1989.

Review:

"One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1991"

"Like the adage about firewood, this book warms twice. First there is the warmth of Yoshikawa Kojiro's spry and versatile mind, and then there is John Wixted's lovely and obviously loving translation of those thoughts into English.... [This] book is a delightful and timely reminder of what the love of literature is all about."---Joseph R. Allen, The Journal of Asian Studies
