THE COLUMBIA ANTHOLOGY OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE LITERATURE brings together a wide spectrum of genres~not only fiction, poetty, and drama but also folk stories, elegies, letters, travelogues, criticism, and theory~in one portable volume. This breadth of coverage is unprecedented, other anthologies include only a few standard genres and consist almost entirely of writings by elites. Mair's anthology broadens the canonical conceptions of the Chinese classics and emphasizes for readers the distinctive features of Chinese literature through the ages by means of its topical arrangement. Mair has marshaled an impressive number of new, never~before~published translations~almost half of the more than four hundred works presented in the anthology. Well~known favorites also appear, in almost all cases with new translations that better suit the needs of readers at the turn of the millennium. Wherever possible, texts are included in unabbreviated form. Mair paints an absorbing picture of premodern Chinese society through its literature and offers helpful commentary for the uninitiated with his extensive annotations and introductory notes. Scholars and lovers of literature will appreciate the comprehensive cross~referencing that emphasizes the depth and breadth of the Chinese literature presented here. The essential compendium for any student of classic Chinese literature, culture, and history, THE COLUMBIA ANTHOLOGY OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE LITERATURE will also appeal to any reader with an interest in China.
