CHINA 278: Li Qingzhao (CHINA 378)

This course examines the writings and reception history of Li Qingzhao (1084-1150s), the most renowned woman writer of imperial China. We will read her song lyrics (ci), the most celebrated form of her writings, as well as several of her poems in the shi form and her various prose writings as well. The singularity of her work as a poet and critic will be brought out through comparison with other writers of her day.nnnAttention will also be given to the complicated reception history of her work, from her own day down through late imperial times and into the twentieth century. This history is inseparable from controversies surrounding her conduct and changing notions of womanly virtue in the Ming-Qing period. The legacy of those notions even in modern representations of Li Qingzhao will also be analyzed.nnnClass meets in Knight Bldg, Rm 102.
