Joseph Edkins was a prominent Sinologist whose works cover 266 articles and books. We present here three essays and a section of one of his book that are relevant to Chinese poetry: (1) On the poets of china during the period of the contending states and of the Han dynasty, (2) Passage from the Li Sao, (3), On Li Taibai, with examples of his poetry and (4) On sounds and rhymes (study of ‘Old Chinese phonology’).
