Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Songs of the South is cause for celebration. There is simply no substitute. The text is fundamental to the Chinese tradition, and Hawkes’s introduction itself is a work of wonder. It should be kept in print in perpetuity." — Philip Kafalas, Associate Professor of Chinese, Georgetown University

About the Author

Qu Yuan (c. 340 BC-278 BC) was a scholar and a government minister. He is regarded as the first Chinese poet to have his name attributed to his work and his death is commemorated with the famous Duanwu (Dragon Boat) Festival.

David Hawkes (1923-2009) was a professor of Chinese at Oxford from 1959 to 1971. From 1973 to 1983, he was a research fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, and subsequently became an emeritus fellow.
