More than any other treasure, Shijing contains the historical roots of China, from which much of modern culture grew. From a lovelorn young man to an aging woman spurned by her wedded husband, from an elder statesman admonishing a young sovereign, to foot-soldiers facing the unspeakable fate of sacrificial burial, the love and war in Shijing serves as a key to unlock the cultural roots of Ancient China. The book presents the reader with a fascinating glimpse of the peoples of Ancient China by analyzing many poems in Shijing and discussing aspects of culture and events reflected in the poems from a wide range of disciplines, including archeology, ethnography, history and linguistics. Reading this book will enhance the general reader s knowledge of Chinese culture as well as familiarity with the language as a bare-bone . Minimalist English translation is used which enables readers to get closer to and gain a better sense and flavor of the original text.
