Existing studies of modern Chinese poets have tended to address the Chinese sonnet, marginally if at all. In this book, Lloyd Haft shows that the sonnet, far from being a mere curiosity of cultural  borrowing, has actually been one of the most perennially vital forms of modern Chinese verse. Discussing more than 50 poems spanning the period from the 1920s to the present, Haft develops analytic strategies which bring out the expressive dimensions of the Chinese sonnet as well as its legitimate claim to 'Chineseness'.
