Summary
"Based on translations of an unique tenth-century text, the Collected Statements, this work explores a worthy social commentary on the examination life that its compiler witnessed." "Gradually providing a full picture of the civil service examination, it describes the emergence of the literary culture surrounding civil service examination recruitment during China's Tang dynasty (618-907). It considers the series of rituals that Tang examination candidates underwent throughout the annual examinations, contrasting lavish court ceremonies of the early Tang period with more private rituals of acknowledgement that became fashionable in the second half of the dynasty." "An annual programme of rituals became the cardinal definition of examination recruitment for both participants and onlookers. The interpretation of this programme offers valuable insights into the political and social tensions in the Tang history of examination degrees."--BOOK JACKET.
