Chinese Literature: A Very Short Introduction
- By: Sabina Knight
- Narrated by: George Backman
- Length: 5 hrs and 1 min
Perhaps nowhere else has literature been as conscious a collective endeavor as in China, and China's survival over 3,000 years may owe more to its literary traditions than to its political history. This Very Short Introduction tells the story of Chinese literature from antiquity to the present, focusing on the key role literary culture played in supporting social and political concerns. Embracing traditional Chinese understandings of literature as encompassing history and philosophy as well as poetry and poetics, storytelling, drama, and the novel, Sabina Knight discusses the philosophical foundations of literary culture.
