Mencius Reader, A: For Beginning and Advanced Students of Classical Chinese


by Donald B. Wagner

2004, 140 pp, 15x23 cm.

This textbook contains material for students of Classical Chinese at three different levels of difficulty:

The first chapter of Mencius, reproduced from a modern punctuated edition, with very detailed notes and glosses intended for students in their second semester of Classical Chinese.

The same chapter, reproduced from a Song wood-block edition, which beginning students who are more ambitions may wish to use instead of the punctuated edition.

Notes and glosses on the Eastern Han commentary of Zhao Qi (included in the Song edition), intended for more advanced students.
