Dear fellows,

AIGCS is pleased to launch the HOW TO READ CHINESE POETRY VIDEOS (HTRCPV), a companion program of HOW TO READ CHINESE POETRY PODCAST. As a matter of fact, its first episodes are cross-listed as special video episodes (eps. 37-39) of the Podcast. Unlike the Podcast, HTRCPV does not track Chinese poetry’s historical development but presents episodes in thematic clusters. Due to the much greater technical challenges in producing videos, we will bot be able to release episodes at regular intervals. We ask for kind patience from our viewers.

Contents of Topic 12
The Sounds of the Tang Poetry: Mastering Tonal Patterns of Recent-Style Poetry
