It is also my hope that this distinction between dramatic and narrative modes of presentation will on the one hand provide a framework for the interpretation of individual poems, and on the other contribute to the understanding of pivotal importance of Han yüeh-fu in the development of other modes in later pentasyllabic poetry.
The former are anonymous love songs in the yüeh-fu categories of Chiang-nan Wu sheng (wu songs of the Chiang nan region), Ching ch'u hsi sheng (western songs from Ching and Ch'u), and ku chiao heng ch'ui ch'ü (songs accompanied by drum, horn, and transverse flute); while the latter are shih quatrains by scholar poets.
A small number of quatrains appear to merge the two styles; in such cases the first couplet is generally a declarative statement for descriptive purposes, and the second is a modal statement for expressive purposes.

 UH Press: Books and Journals published by the University of Hawaii Press
This singular work presents the most comprehensive and nuanced studies available in any Western language of Chinese aesthetic thought and practice during the Six Dynasties (A.D. Despite a succession of dynastic and social upheavals, the literati preoccupied themselves with both the sensuous and the transcendent and strove for cultural dominance.
Grounded in close readings of primary texts, they reveal the complex, dynamic interplay between life and art, the sensuous and the metaphysical, and the artistic and the philosophicaleligious that lies at the heart of the aesthetic thought and practice of the time.
As a whole, the collection demonstrates that Six Dynasties achieved a sophistication in aesthetic thought comparable in many ways to that of the West: The discussion of disinterestedness in art, aesthetic judgment, and how mental images mediate between the supersensible and the sensible are reminiscent of Kant.
