    Qu Yuan (c. – BC) was a Chinese poet and politician who lived during the Warring States is known for his patriotism and contributions to classical poetry and verses, especially through the poems of the Chu Ci anthology (also known as The Songs of the South or Songs of Chu): a volume of poems attributed to or considered to be inspired by his verse writing. The literary tradition of Classical Chinese poetry begins with the Classic of Poetry, or Shijing, dated to early 1st millennium ing to tradition, Confucius ( BCE – BCE) was the final editor of the collection in its present form, although the individual poems were mostly older than this. Burton Watson dates the anthology's main compilation date to about the 7th century BCE.

      Nevertheless, the book is far more readable than that of St. Denys, and shows a wider acquaintance with Chinese poetry on the part of whoever chose the poems. Most of the credit for this selection must certainly be given to Ting Tun-ling, the literatus whom Théophile Gautier befriended.

    Shijing, (Chinese: “Classic of Poetry”) the first anthology of Chinese poetry. It was compiled by the ancient sage Confucius (– bc) and cited by him as a model of literary expression, for, despite its numerous themes, the subject matter was always “expressive of pleasure without being.   In spite of the fact that the first verse of Laozi’s Daode Jing states that "the name that can be spoken is not the eternal name," poetry has always been an important aspect of Taoist Taoist poems, we find expressions of the ineffable, praises of the beauty of the natural world, and playful paradoxical references to the mysterious Tao.
