This is an annotated English translation of Wenxin Diaolong written by Liu Xie (465-521 A.D). Considered China's Poetics by the great modern writer Lu Xun, Dragon-Carving and the Literary Mind has achieved a quasi-disciplinary status with its own name: Dragonology. Published in two volumes, this English translation is accompanied by Zhou Zhenfu's modern Chinese translation of the original classical Chinese text.
