Book Release in December for JCCC Professor and Author, Shudong Chen

Humanities Professor Shudong Chen’s forthcoming book Four Quartets in the Light of the Chinese Jar, will be available from Lexington Books in December. The book discusses how T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets “should be explored afresh with a prosodic-philosophically sustained interdisciplinary and cross-cultural literary approach.” Professor Chen’s previous book, Comparative Literature in the Light of Chinese Prosody, was published in 2018.
