Chinese Literature Comprising the Analects of Confucius, the Sayings of Mencius, the Shi-King, the Travels of Fâ-Hien, and the Sorrows of Han

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

This spectacular collection contains the key writings of Confucius, Mencius and Faxian, superbly translated by three leading scholars of China in the West.


This anthology of Chinese literature was first published at the turn of the 20th century, and is intended as an superb introduction to the facets of wisdom and thought which emerged from the country in ancient times. The writings within retain their timeless nature, and together form an excellent representation of the intellectual development which attained prominence in Ancient China - the Confucian philosophy expressed continues to influence Chinese and Asian cultures in the modern day.


The Analects of Confucius is a pivotal work of Confucianism which contains many of the philosophic ideas and jewels of wisdom for which its author is renowned.


The Sayings of Mencius comprises of several dialogues held between the Confucian philosopher and various students, nobles and contemporaries of the era.


The Travels of F -Hien (Faxian) is an early travelogue which chronicles the author's journeys far beyond the farthest extent of Chinese civilisation. Faxian was a Buddhist monk intrigued by the origins of his religion - through his travels he encountered Indian, Nepalese and other peoples, and the stunning temple of the Indian king Ashoka. To this day, Faxian's writings remain an important source for scholars of Asian antiquity.


The Sorrows of Han is one of the earliest tragic plays produced for the stage in Ancient China. Although but a small part of the Chinese dramatic library, the play is representative of the performances which would be staged often on temporary stages erected in the bustling marketplaces as a form of public entertainment. While the Chinese placed less importance on drama than the Greeks, it was popular and reflective of the national character.
