China Literature
Standing shoulder to shoulder with the above-mentioned rhymed genres such as fu, shi, and ci was prose. The earliest texts of classical Chinese prose were the philosophical writings of the Hundred Schools of Thought (770-221 BCE), for example, the works of Zhuangzi, Mozi, Mencius, etc. Simple, concise, and economical prose style became a model literary form. The Records of the Grand Historian (史记 shi ji) carried on this tradition and remained a most influential example of prose texts for the successive dynasties. Han Yu (韩愈 (768–824)) and seven other writers were listed as “Eight Great Prose Masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties”, whose texts, featuring simple, direct, and forceful styles, have often been held as prose samples for later generations to learn from.
