Summary
  • "Li Bo (701-762), the poet who "could make the spirits weep and the ghosts shed tears," has long inspired controversy among readers and critics. Known even during his lifetime as the "Banished Immortal," he continues to spark imaginations, challenge passionately held convictions about poetic values, and maintain, alongside Du Fu, his position as "one of China's two greatest poets."
  • In this lucidly and gracefully written volume, Paula Varsano presents the first full-length study of Li Bo in English in half a century and the first extended look at the poet's critical reception."
  • "This story of Li-Ba's critical reception and canonization is propelled by the malleable and elusive ideal of the "ancient." And so, Varsano devotes the second part of her study to the poems themselves, investigating those poetic manifestations of ancientness that translated into the enduring figure of the Banished Immortal. Through close readings of his poems, she demonstrates how play and performance paradoxically augment the ancient values of expressive immediacy and genuineness."--Jacket
