"Without question a significant contribution to the field. There is no textbook of this kind available. It provides the student with a comprehensive grammar of classical Chinese with clear and readable explanations in both English and modern Chinese. By fully utilizing both languages in one text, the authors of this Reader have created a teaching tool that will have wide appeal and applicability. The translations are accurate and felicitous."--Catherine Swatek, University of British Columbia "This Reader addresses a huge gap in Chinese language textbook offerings--that is, a basic introduction to Classical Chinese. It is far superior to previous such works: the texts reflect a more logical progression from simple structures to more complex ones, and the grammatical explanations are more structured and more detailed. The book also does an excellent job of reinforcing past patterns, and further serves as an introduction to Chinese culture and literature."--Kimberly Besio, Colby CollegeYuan, Nai-Ying is the author of 'Classical Chinese A Basic Reader Texts, Glossaries, Analyses', published 2004 under ISBN 9780691118314 and ISBN 0691118310.
