Synopsis: Chinese poetry is the most highly regarded literary genre in China. Traditionally, it is divided into shi (诗), ci (词) and qu (曲). There is also a kind of prose-poem called fu (赋). During the modern period, there also has developed free verse in Western style. All traditional forms of Chinese poetry are rhymed, but not all rhymed texts in ancient China are classified as poetry - for instance, lines from I Ching are often rhymed, but it is not considered poetry. (Compare the Pre-Socratic philosophical works in ancient Greece which are in the form of poetry.)
