Renjian Cihua is a masterpiece in Chinese literary criticism written by Wang Guowei, a famous scholar in the study of Chinese classics. It is also one of the most influential academic works in China from the late Qing Dynasty to the present. This book contains two parts. The first part is the content of the lectures given by the author Florence Chia-ying Yeh, who is a Chinese-born Canadian poet and scholar of classical Chinese poetry. With accessible, graceful and refined language, the author explains the theory on "artistic conceptions" in Renjian Cihua, the difference between Shi and Ci in aesthetic traits, and the works of celebrated Ci poets in various dynasties. The second part is the translation of Renjian Cihua.

This book will be a valuable reference to scholars and students in Chinese classics and Wang Guowei studies. Readers interested in Chinese literature will also be attracted by it.
