schema:description""This story of Li-Ba's critical reception and canonization is propelled by the malleable and elusive ideal of the "ancient." And so, Varsano devotes the second part of her study to the poems themselves, investigating those poetic manifestations of ancientness that translated into the enduring figure of the Banished Immortal. Through close readings of his poems, she demonstrates how play and performance paradoxically augment the ancient values of expressive immediacy and genuineness."--BOOK JACKET."@en
