Chinese calligraphy has been an independent visual art form for thousands of years. Its wonderful aesthetics has inspired the art of Chinese painting since the second century B.C. Before pen and pencil were introduced to China, millions practiced the art of writing in ink. In the twentieth century, the art of calligraphy has not only fascinated modern Chinese who are part of this continuous tradition, but has also captured the interest and imagination of the world. This is the first proper history of Chinese calligraphy in English.

Der M�nchskalligraph Huai-su (ca. 725-ca. 782) gilt als einer der Begruender der "Wilden Konzeptschrift" (k'uang-ts'ao), die den exzentrischen Stil innerhalb der chinesischen Kalligraphiegeschichte pr�gte und zur Herausbildung einer vom klassischen Ideal der Wang-Schule abweichenden Traditionslinie fuehrte. Die vorliegende Studie gibt erstmals Einblick in die Prim�rquellen: neben Briefen und anderen Zeugnissen des Huai-su zahlreiche Lobgedichte von Beamten und Gelehrten. Alles deutet darauf hin, da� es sich bei seinem Hauptwerk, der sog. Autobiographie, um ein Empfehlungsschreiben in eigener Sache handelt. Neben einer annotierten �bersetzung der Autobiographie und s�mtlicher Kollophone, die einen �berblick ueber das Schicksal der Querrolle im Laufe der Jahrhunderte vermitteln, bietet die Studie eine Untersuchung der �sthetischen Kriterien, welche die chinesische Kunsttheorie zur Beurteilung der "wilden Konzeptschrift" entwickelte, und stellt neue Methoden der formalen Analyse vor. Die Frage der Authentizit�t der im Palastmuseum Taipei befindlichen Querrolle wird eingehend geprueft; der Beweis, da� es sich nicht um ein Original aus der Hand des Huai-su, sondern um eine dem Original sehr nahe gepauste Kopie des 12.-13. Jhs. handelt, wird erbracht. Auch die uebrigen, seinem Oeuvre zugerechneten Werke werden vorgestellt und einer kritischen Analyse unterzogen.

The three arts of poetry, calligraphy, and painting are regarded in China as the Triple Excellence, and they are brought together here in a beautifully presented anthology of forty Chinese love poems ranging from the earliest known works in the famous Book of Songs to the work of Chaiman Mao and other twentieth-century poets, including poignant examples from the high point of Chinese poetry in the Tang dynasty (618-906). The subject of all the poems and extracts is love, in all its variations: the love of husbands and wives, family and friends, times and places as well as courtship, passion and parting. Selected English translations are each illustrated with a scene from a Chinese painting and are illuminated by the artistic brushwork calligraphy of Qu Lei Lei. Jane Portal's introduction summarizes the history and development of Chinese poetry and provides breif biographical notes on the poets.
