Chinese Literature
“The greatest Chinese poetry was created during the Tang dynasty (618-907). The
Tang period produced a new poetic form called the tz'u, which reached its greatest
popularity during the Song (Sung) dynasty (960-1279). Su Tung-po, was the best-
known tz'u poet of China.”
“Storytelling became a popular form and was printed in storybooks, called
hua-pen, which later inspired the longer novels of China.”

Chinese Literature: Styles of Literature
“It is generally agreed that China's greatest poetry was written in the T'ang dynasty.
Wang Wei, Li Po, Tu Fu, and Po Chü-i are masters of this period. In the succeeding
Sung dynasty Su Tung-p'o was perhaps the foremost poet.”
2Chinese Literature: The Colombia Encyclopedia
During the Sung dynasty (960–1279), the four books that formed the Ssu Shu [four
books] were thought to embody the quintessence of Confucian teachings. They are the
Ta Hsüeh [great learning] and the Chung Yung [doctrine of the mean] from the Li Chi, the
Lun Yü [analects of Confucius], and the Book of Mencius.”
