This timely book offers uplifting examples of major figures in Chinese and Western civilization from ancient to modern times who learned from and influenced each other. Rather than emphasizing cultural differences, this inspiring text highlights successful dialogue, commonalities, and mutual influences in this regard. Readers familiar with the Western canon will discover surprising influences of China on well-known Anglosphere writers and critics. Drawing on an expansive range of periods in the East and West from classical to contemporary times, it is a tour-de-force of theoretical range and practical impact. Starting with Confucius and Socrates, the chapters move chronologically on to address such major figures in Eastern writing as Zhuangzi, Qian Zhongshu, and Zhang Longxi, and Western figures including T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, William Empson, Nietzsche, and Fredric Jameson. The book will appeal to scholars and students at all educational levels, as well as the general public interested in understanding past and current East-West cultural relations.
