The red brush : writing women of imperial China by W. L Idema( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Ban Zhao (ca. 60-ca. 115 C.E.) to Qiu Jin (1875-1907), spanning the two millennia of imperial China (221 B.C.E.-1911), the authors of The Red Brush trace the lives and works of writing women: empresses and palace ladies, daughters of the elite, courtesans, nuns, peasant wives, and cross-dressing revolutionaries. Wilt Idema and Beata Grant have compiled in this volume an ambitious and illuminating collection of poetry, prose, drama, and fiction, as well as memorials, letters, religious writings, and other documents by women writers of imperial China, all in new translations. Many of these writings are of substantial literary quality, and all of them offer a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the women writers of this period."--Jacket

Eminent nuns : women Chan masters of seventeenth-century China by Beata Grant( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Buddhist nuns have been a continuous presence in Chinese culture since early medieval times and the subject of numerous scholarly studies, this book is one of the first not only to provide a detailed view of their activities at one particular moment in time (the seventeenth century), but also to be based largely on the writings and self-representations of Buddhist nuns themselves. This perspective is made possible by the preservation of collections of "discourse records" (yulu) of seven officially designated female Chan masters in a seventeenth-century printing of the Chinese Buddhist Canon rarely used in English-language scholarship. The collections contain records of religious sermons and exchanges, letters, prose pieces, and poems, as well as biographical and autobiographical accounts of various kinds. Supplemental sources by Chan monks and male literati from the same region and period make a detailed re-creation of the lives of these eminent nuns possible

Daughters of emptiness : poems of Chinese Buddhist nuns by Beata Grant( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beata Grant renders a great service by recovering and translating the enchanting verse -- by turns assertive, observant, devout -- of forty-eight nuns from sixteen centuries of imperial China. This selection of poems, along with brief biographical accounts that accompany them, affords readers a glimpse into the extraordinary diversity and sometimes startling richness of these women's lives. Daughters of Emptiness includes original hand-drawn calligraphies of each poet's name, as well as the poems in their original Chinese, alongside the translations
Zen echoes : classic Koans with verse commentaries by three female Chan masters by Beata Grant( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The voices of three female Zen masters reverberate in this much-needed collection. Too often the history of Zen seems to be written as an unbroken masculine line: male teacher to male student. In this timely volume, Beata Grant shows us that women masters do exist-and have always existed. Zen Echoesis a collection of classic koans from Zen's Chinese history that were first collected and commented on by Miaozong, a twelfth-century nun so adept that her teacher, the legendary Dahui Zonggao, used to tell other students that perhaps if they practiced hard enough, they might be as realized as her. Nearly five hundred years later, the seventeenth-century nuns Baochi and Zukui added their own commentaries to the collection. The three voices-distinct yet harmonious-remind us that enlightenmentis at onceuniversal and individual. In her introduction to this shimmering translation, Professor Grant tells us that the verses composed by these women provide evidence that "in a religious milieu made up overwhelmingly of men, there were women who were just as dedicated to Chan practice, just as advanced in their spiritual realization, and just as gifted at using language to convey that which is beyond language."
