Chapter Summary

The study of writing, performance, and music by Chinese women prior to the twentieth century was virtually non-existent forty years ago. The increased availability of source texts, radical changes to the canon and growing demand for Chinese literature courses for students without knowledge of the Chinese language have increased the need for accurate, readable and helpfully annotated translations of Chinese texts. In much of his work, Idema masterfully integrates translation with cultural-historical contextualization, in what over the years has become a uniquely recognizable style. Wilt Idema's oeuvre is exceptional in its inclusiveness and its ability to let different historical periods, genres and issues speak to one another.
