Opis: The Poetry of the Chinese (Classic Reprint) - Davis John Francis

Excerpt from The Poetry of the Chinese

When this Treatise was first printed (now more than forty years ago), with types brought from China, in the quarto Transactions of the Royal Asiatic Society, the foreign character was so little known in England, that Lord Palmerston, with his usual pleasantry, said he took it "at first sight for a work on Entomology." But the number of Entomologists (in this peculiar sense) has so increased in the last half century, that the eye has become sufficiently familiar with a page of Chinese type; and a newspaper printed in modern Greek has been followed, in our cosmopolitan London, by the Fei-Loong, or "Flying Dragon," a Chinese advertiser, in the original character.

Sir James Macintosh, reviewing in the Edinburgh a translation of the Chinese Penal Code by Sir George Staunton, made some striking remarks on its "European good sense," which seems to apply more or less to all branches of Chinese literature. "There is nothing of the monstrous verbiage of most other Asiatic productions, - none of the superstitious deliration, the miserable incoherence, the tremendous non-sequiturs, and eternal repetitions of those oracular performances.
