This course introduces students to the world of Chinese poetry by examining exemplary works of leading Tang and Song poets. Students will be reading and interpreting works by Li Bo, Du Fu, Han Shan, Du Xunhe, and Bai Juyi. Class work includes lectures by the instructor but emphasizes student participation through means such as guided translation, textrecitation, and students' presentations. Through individual and collaborative analytical exercises, students will become familiar with styles and aesthetic features of Tang and Song poetry. Students who take 6171-6172 will be assigned a translation project:they will select a single classical poet, and translate a selection of poems by that poet into English, with full annotations. Undergraduate students are allowed by instructor approval.
