Popular Songs and Ballads of Han China


This important study of the folk song is standard reading for students of oral literature and Chinese folklore and popular culture. The oral factor in Chinese literature, although critically important, has been largely neglected.
In this study, one of the leading specialists in classical Chinese literature introduces readers to seventy-seven songs and ballads of early imperial China. Each song-text is newly translated and fully annotated. The introductory essay provides a valuable context for this material.
