Chinese Poetic Writing has been considered by many to be one of the most innovative studies of Chinese poetry. Cheng illustrates his text with an annotated anthology of 135 poems from the golden age of Tang Dynasty, featuring lively translations of the works of Tu Fu, Li Po, Wang Wei and other poets. The 1982 translation, based on the original French 1977 edition has been greatly expanded by Cheng with many new additions.

François Cheng, a renowned poet, essayist and art historian based in Paris, was the first Asian person elected to the French Academy in 2002.

Donald A. Riggs is Teaching Professor of English at Drexel University.

Jerome P. Seaton is Emeritus Professor of Chinese at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
