The Poetics and Politics of Sensuality in China: The “Fragrant and Bedazzling” Movement (1600-1930) by Xiaorong Li

"Professor Li proves with rigorous, persuasive scholarship that the xiangyan genre was indeed a political exercise with a 600-year lineage. ... her study is diachronic; the poems and attached theories were aggressively articulated in the late Ming, continued through the Qing—despite charges of indecency—and taken up with zeal in the Republican era. ... she also firmly and solidly, with elegant argument and resourceful use of paratextual material, proves that poets, anthologists, editors, and essayists not only believed in the power of the sensual, but also advocated the authority of the sensual." —China Review International
