Summary
"Explores the literature of the mid-Tang to reveal the complex value that its writers discovered in friendship--as a rewarding social practice, a rich literary topic, a way to negotiate literati identity, and a path toward self-understanding. Shields traces the evolution of the performance of friendship through a wide range of genres, including letters, prefaces, exchange poetry, and funerary texts, and weaves elegant translations with close readings of these texts"--Provided by the publisher
