Geschichte der chinesischen Literatur

[History of Chinese Literature]

Ed. by Kubin, Wolfgang

DE GRUYTER SAUR

    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Of the roughly 9,000 years of civilization China is looking back on, almost 4,000 are documented by written literature. The most extensive account of Chinese literary history to date - spanning some 3,000 years - the Geschichte der chinesischen Literatur presents the historical development of each literary genre from the beginnings to the present day. Renowned scholars were involved in portraying the longest literary tradition still alive. Seven volumes focus on individual genres; this work is rounded off by the Bibliographie zur chinesischen Literatur in deutscher Sprache (Bibliography of Chinese Literature in German), the Biographisches Handbuch chinesischer Schriftsteller (Biographical Handbook of Chinese Writers) and an index volume.
