Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book The Poetry of He Zhu (1052-1125): Genres, Contexts, and Creativity. He Zhu's entire poetry collection disappeared when the Jurchen armies swept south across the Yangzi River shortly after his death in 1125. The effect of a given genre on the tone of a specific poem is seldom mentioned in most scholarship on Chinese poets, though certain poets are declared to excel in one genre or another. Meter in Chinese poetry is defined by the tones of the syllables. Some characters are common in Chinese poetry for the differences in meaning to be ignored if a certain tone is required to meet metrical requirements.

Keywords: Chinese poetry; He Zhu; Jurchen armies
