The splendour and richness of Chinese classical literature encompasses a dazzling range, from poetry, rhymed prose and essays to drama and novels, with outstanding representative works in each genre.

Despite the passage of time, these works remain fresh and relevant today. The immortals lines from Li Bai's " Reflections on a Quiet Night", " Raising my head, I look at the bright moon; Hanging my head, I think of home," continue to strike a chord in the heart of many traveller far from home, while the tragedy in The Dream of the Red Chamber is still able to move us deeply.

Using illustrations and lucid exposition of the various style of classical Chinese literature, this book takes the reader on a tour of the Chinese literary world and valuable insight into the Chinese civilisation.
