An anthology of Chinese literature : beginnings to 1911 by Stephen Owen( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,159 libraries worldwide
Moving roughly chronologically, An Anthology of Chinese Literature gathers texts according to genres, themes, forms, and other groupings to show the way essential texts build off one another and how the tradition echoes itself. Including a range of forms - songs, letters, anecdotes, stories, plays, political oratory, traditional literary theory, and more - the anthology's innovative structure breaks new ground by providing a previously unavailable view of the interplay between Chinese literature, culture, and history to alert non-Chinese readers to what premodern Chinese readers would have noticed instinctively. Helpful apparatus, including a general introduction describing the evolution of Chinese literature, a note on translation, period introductions, a timeline, and interpretive commentary, make the tradition accessible not only to the student of Chinese literature but also to the general reader

The end of the Chinese 'Middle ages' : essays in Mid-Tang literary culture by Stephen Owen( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 401 libraries worldwide
This book explores, through a series of essays, a set of interrelated elements that define the literary culture of China in the late eighth and early ninth centuries. This period, known as the Mid-Tang, broke with many of the intellectual habits of the 'middle period' of Chinese culture and adumbrated many of the characteristics of China in the Song and later periods. Issues examined include the problem of 'singularity', or representations of identity as an assertion of superiority over others, different ways of representing landscapes and domestic activities, and changing perceptions in the status and role of the writer and poet as an artist

Readings in Chinese literary thought by Stephen Owen( Book )
6 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 358 libraries worldwide
In this dual-language compilation of seven complete major works and many shorter pieces from the Confucian period through the Ch'ing dynasty, Stephen Owen provides fundamental texts in the history of Chinese thought on literature and comments on them extensively. Canonical early statements, prefaces, poems on poetry treatises, short essays, letters, technical manuals - all are represented and placed in their historical and cultural context. Besides discussing individual selections in detail, Owen traces the development of motifs, methods of argumentation, and deep concerns in Chinese literary thought and explains how they diverge from Western literary theory. This beautifully designed volume will be indispensable to students of Chinese literature, while its translations and commentaries will open up Chinese literary thought to theorists and scholars of other languages
