      Chinese literature Earliest literary texts date from the Zhou dynasty (c– bc). This period produced the canonical writings of Confucianism: the Five Classics, including the first poetry anthology Shih ching (Classic of Odes); and the Four Books, containing doctrinal writings, such as The Book of ionally attributed to Confucius, the Shih ching is probably earlier still. The written history of China begins with the Shang Dynasty (ca. BCE - ca. BCE). Turtle shells with ancient Chinese writing from the Shang Dynasty have been carbon dated to as early as BCE. The origins of Chinese culture, literature and philosophy, developed during the Zhou Dynasty (BCE to BCE) that followed the Shang.

      In the same way that Homer’s epics took hold within the West, The Book of Songs played a role in spheres far beyond literature, with a lasting influence on Chinese civilisation.   Must-read novels and short stories from modern China The China Channel is selling its soul and running a short summer series of listicles: on literature, film and China books. We begin with the fiction, focusing on contemporary fare from the last decades, to better give a feel for modern China through its novels. The list is selective and subjective, and partly determined by what is available.
