The Study of "The Anxiety of Influence" on Sung(Song) Poets

The author of this dissertation utilizes Harold Bloom's
literary theory, known as "The Anxiety of Influence"(1973) 
as the theoretical basis and applies it to the study of the
phenomena of the Sung poetry. She uses the
concepts of "influence" and "misreading" to examine the
interaction and relationship between Sung poets
and their predecessors.
The author chooses five strong Sung poets and
observes their creative state of mind while they faced the
pressure of influence. Based on their writing strategies,
the author inducts "revisionary ratios" that is specific to
the Chinese culture and proceeds to shape a new
theoretical perspective on the history of Sung poetry.
