This course focuses on the highlights of premodern Chinese literature from antiquity to the turn of the 20th century. We will begin with several ancient philosophical texts, written in brilliant literary styles, which document the first "philosophic breakthrough" in Chinese civilization. We will then undertake to follow the evolution of various forms of poetry, fiction, and other kinds of prose written in the classical language, as well as the developments of drama and fiction written in the vernacular language in the late imperial periods. The principal aim is to enable students to become familiar with, and also to be able to enjoy, the masterpieces of literature that illustrate the range and depth of the Chinese imagination, the inner life of the individual, and the outer social and political life of China through its long cultural history. No knowledge of Chinese is required. Readings are in English translation. Requirements include three short papers and a final examination.

This course covers skills and materials necessary for scholarship in premodern Chinese literature, history, art history, and thought. It is intended to serve as a bridge from general elementary classical language study to proseminars and seminars in specialized fields. The first section of the course provides an introduction to and practice with a range of lexical and technical aids, including Western language, Chinese, and Japanese dictionaries, encyclopedia, concordances, indices, atlases, and conversion charts. Practice in locating and understanding classical texts is a key part of the course, and, when possible, students' current research interests are indulged. Emphasis is always on the systematic, accurate, and efficient culling of information from the research library. Briefer sections are devoted to the utilization of modern scholarship on China in books and periodicals and access to such scholarship through bibliographies, comprehensive studies, and library catalogs. Some attention is devoted to the acquisition of materials, the interpretation and presentation of publication data, and other style sheet issues. There are weekly projects to exercise developing skills, assigned with the goal of improving reading levels in tandem with other research skills. Three or four brief (2-3 page) research papers are required, one on a topic, one on the history of a text, one on a historical figure, and one critical review of a piece of modern scholarship.
