Course Description: How does the lean prose of classical Chinese express complexities of feeling or imagination? What issues does fiction in this ancient language raise about traditional Chinese society, beliefs, and values? This course examines samples of pre-Tang zhiguai (tales of the strange and supernatural) and zhiren (tales of the world), Sui-Tang chuanqi (transmission of the marvellous), and the "strange stories" of the 17th century scholar Pu Songling. This course assumes a thorough grounding in Classical Chinese.
