Giving imaginative expression to his experience of national crisis, his poetic writing established him in China as an exemplar of moral courage and literary accomplishment. A consequence of his heroic status is that a crucial concern of his poetry, namely, romantic love, has been largely neglected by scholars. This book by Kang-i Sun Chang focuses on Chens poetry and establishes a connection between his love poetry and his loyalist writings.
