Creativity and convention in Su Shi's literary thought
This is the first extensive study of the concept of "rule" in Su Shi (c. 1065) and its application to his prose. It argues that his understanding of literary rules and conventions was predicated on a wider concept of regulation in every human sphere. Su's application of rules and conventions is analysed in three prose genres: funerary writing, literary accounts and rhapsodies.
