Renditions No. 80 (Autumn 2013), Research Centre for Translation
This issue again compiles writings in various genres and from different periods of Chinese history. We are both delighted and honoured to begin it with the late Professor D. C. Lau's translation of the 'Advanced School of Learning' (Daxue), that foundational Confucian text offering sage advice on self-cultivation, which was a moral guide in China for many hundreds of years. Other highlights are a Song dynasty tale of elopement and the resulting court case, and seventeenth century critic Jin Shengtan's insightful commentary on the Shuihu zhuan. Also included are 'The History of Humanity', an important 1907 essay by Lu Xun, a thought-provoking exploration on the differences between Chinese literature and civilization and the Western institutions by the controversial writer and critic Hu Lancheng, followed by ten contemporary poems by Chien Chengchen, and a short story from 1930s Shanghai by the 'new sensationalist' Mu Shiying.

The thirtieth and thirty-first titles of The CHANT Series, A Glossary of the Lüshi Chunqiu and A Glossary of the Han Feizi, were published by the Chinese University Press in December 2013 and January 2014, respectively. The two books made use of the CHANT database and a newly designed computer program to select words from all extant texts, building up specific glossaries for the Lüshi chunqiu and the Han Feizi. The vocabulary first found in the Lüshi chunqiu and the Han Feizi are listed and compiled here for the first time.
