Item description for Chinese Through Poetry by Archie Barnes...

This is the first book to approach the study of Classical Chinese through verse instead of prose. Script, grammar and vocabulary are taught from scratch. The work can be used as a first introduction to traditional literary Chinese by anyone with no knowledge of the language. It is also suitable as part of a course in Classical Chinese for private study with or without previous knowledge of Chinese. The exercises are progressive in that each is restricted to the vocabulary and grammar met so far. The book serves as an introduction to Chinese verse for its own sake. It will be of great interest to ethnic Chinese wishing to recover their cultural roots.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chinese Through Poetry?

This book is a gift to Chinese learners and lovers of poetry  Apr 3, 2008
I have dozens of books on Chinese and Chinese poetry, but this is one of the best. Archie Barnes was a true teacher, and this book is a gift to those of us who want to learn both Chinese and Chinese poetry. "Chinese through Poetry" is so good I went to the Monterey Language Institute to study Chinese so I could get more out of this book. Even if you haven't had the good fortune to study Chinese, "Chinese through Poetry" is valuable.
An excellent book!  Mar 30, 2008
I've been enamored of Chinese poetry for some time now. This is by far the best book I've seen for someone with no background in Chinese who wants to study the poems in the original language. Highly recommended.
Amazing - well worth the read  Sep 16, 2007
It is probably better if you know some chinese (modern or classical) before dipping into this book, but even without, there is much to learn and pick up. The style is easy to read and as an ABC to classical chinese poetry there is really nothing like it at all. I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you need one book to start to appreciate the language and the poetry of ancient China, this book is definitely it.
