This book brings together for the first time the major essays and review-articles of David Hawkes, distinguished British sinologist and translator, Professor of Chinese at Oxford until 1971. It takes its title from his 1961 inaugural lecture, in which both his erudition and his concern for the broadening and enlivening of Chinese literary studies are evident. Also contained in the collection are several popular introductory essays, a number of scholarly articles for the specialist, and a series of review-articles from the Times Literary Supplement. Every page is marked by the enlightening perceptions, the lively wit and the stylistic elegance that readers have come to expect from the author.
