Southern Identity and Southern Estrangement in Medieval Chinese Poetry

The pond of the Xi family and Mount Xian are two sites in the city of Xiangyang that became prominent in history and poetry from the early medieval period. Their conventional depictions, as well as rebellions from convention, constitute a wide spectrum of literary topoi associated with the two places. Whatever the individual variations of particular poets on these familiar topoi, the fame of Xiangyang itself prospered. As the Jing-Chu region rose to distinction in medieval times, Chinese poets worked to refashion their own identities in light of the lore of this new region.
