Traditional Chinese Literature
LTRN 227 /Asian Studies 227
This general survey course introduces students to traditional Chinese literature through a wide variety of works and important genres that developed from the Western Zhou dynasty to the mid-Qing dynasty (11th ct. BCE through mid-18th ct. CE). These texts range from the early myths, famous fables, from major philosophical schools, poetry, folklore, ghost stories, dramas, short stories and novels. The course seeks to demonstrate that traditional Chinese literature is a living heritage, rather than merely a relic of the past, therefore bridging what was written in the past with what students see in today's China.
