Content Description

This edition of Elegies of the South (Chu Ci) is trilingual Ancient Chinese, Modern Chinese and English. Both the Chinese original as well the English translation are annotated. With a large preface, bilingual Chinese and English, by the translator Pr. Xu Yuanchong.
Chu Ci (traditional Chinese: 楚辭; simplified Chinese: 楚辞; pinyin: chǔ cí), also known as Songs of the South or Songs of Chu, is an anthology of Chinese poems by Qu Yuan and Song Yu from the Warring States period and subsequent imitators of their poetic style. Consisting of fifty-eight short poems and six long poems, Chu Ci is the second oldest collection of Chinese poems in record.


Excerpt from the preface

Elegies of the South (Chu Ci) may be said to be the the earliest collection of romantic poems written by poets of the largest State of Chu along the Blue River of the Yangzi Valley, permeated with time-hallowed tradition, fantastic imagination and violent emotions of a mythical world.
Qu Yuan (340—278 B.C.) was the most important Chu poet who lived at a time when romanticism or shamanism in the South came into contact with realism in the North. He became the greatest lyrical poet in ancient China as a result of the contact. At first, he had won the confidence of the king of Chu, and held the high post of  “left minister”. In view of the danger threatening Chu from the powerful State of Qin, Qu Yuan proposed reform in the government and alliance with the rich State of Qi to ensure the safety of Chu. But the king of Chu was surrounded by self-seekers who, having accepted bribes from Qin’s envoy, not only dissuaded the king from taking Qu Yuan’s advice, but brought about the poet’s estrangement from the king. Therefore, Qu Yuan wrote his autobiographic long poem Sorrow After Departure.
This long poem is not only one of the most remarkable works of Chinese poetry, but it ranks as one of the greatest poems in world literature. It describes the poet’s patriotism, his disillusionment with a society fallen into evil ways and his imaginary journeys in a chariot drawn by dragon and phoenix to a supernatural world…..
