“The Poet as Scholar: Essays and Translations in Honor of Jonathan Chaves ” is a tribute to our forum member, Jonathan Chaves, Professor of Chinese Language and Literature at George Washington University since 1979.

In this volume, there are essays and translations that are not oriented around a single academic theme or problem. Rather, we have a collection of excellent contributions that add a singular perspective and academic or cultural contribution to a field of endeavor substantially influenced, or even originated, by Jonathan Chaves. It is organized into four sections: I. Translations, II. Classical Chinese Poetry, III. Art, Literati Culture, and Aesthetics in China and Japan, and IV. Culture and History.
