Summary note:
"Li Mengyang (1473-1530) was a scholar-official and man of letters who initiated the literary archaist movement that sought to restore ancient styles of prose and poetry in sixteenth-century China. Ong comprehensively examines Li's intellectual scheme, situating his quest to redefine literati learning as a way to build a perfect social order."-- Provided by publisher
