:lol:

It seems you are determined to give me a stack of work to edit in to my original post!

But thanks, you are uncovering so much information, I also had no idea that so many English sources when I started to compile them!

Sorry to do that to you Fin, but once I started I just couldn't stop! :mrgreen:

There shouldn't be too much more out there in the world, and a lot of it skews towards the end of the period and the early Jin period in general terms. Philosophy and poetry take far greater emphasis in the journals than war and individual characters. Wei seems to occupy the prized spot, Rafe dominates the Wu material, and there are only a handful of articles on Shu - and none on Liu Bei.

Scornfully I raise to parted lips a cup of warm wine,
Longingly I cast an empty vessel aside those exposed roots,
And leave behind forgotten memories and forsaken dreams.

Dynamics of Disintegration: The Later Han Empire (25-220CE) & Its Northwestern Frontier
WAI KIT WICKY TSE University of Pennsylvania, wtse0709@gmail.com
[PhD Dissertation Piece]

It does not really focus on our period, but it adds a bit of layered context. Furthermore, he's working with resources in China directly through their experts, so there is a different perspective to the material. Rafe gets mentioned 27 times in the text, and it looks thoroughly researched. Not sure how authoritative I would call it, I will need to finish reading it first, but I would give it a look if you want more direct context for the Three Kingdoms, even if he stops shy of bringing us there.

Does anybody have access to Killigrew's article on the conquest of Wu? I can access his articles on Zhuge Liang's Northern Campaigns and Wei's conquest of Shu-Han but my school database doesn't have the Wu article anywhere.

I wish I could help on this point, but I don't have access to most of Killigrew's stuff. In fact, I just have one + his reviews of some articles.

Wei-Jin Sacrificial Ballets: Reform versus Conservation by Kevin A. Jensen is a thesis on the music and context of music that starts in our era, and moves out to just beyond the Jin.

Thank you Sun Fin, I've been wanting to find a collection of books covering Later Han/Three Kingdoms era, but the information tends to be scarce. :D

In my quest to learn more on Tao Qian, I have uncovered some additional sources of information.

Two years ago there was an article published in Monumenta Serica that deals with how Cao Cao's historical evaluation changed during the Song Dynasty by Anne McLaron. I do not have access to it, but it may be a good read if you have access to the journal.

http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1 ... 2.60.1.003

Shi Xianglin published a dissertation piece at the University of Washington that focused on the last three decades of the Later Han Period with respect to Jian'An poetry. It is free to read, and is just about book length.

Hyung-Jong Lee published a much shorter piece in support of his dissertation at the University of Washington in Saint Louis. This one is on the role of Sun Quan and his role in historiography from Sanguozhi to Sanguoyanyi. Also free for reading.

Last, but not least, there is an attempt to showcase the Three Kingdoms from the perspective of Shu and Wu published in the December 2016 edition of the American Oriental Society. I do not know how good it is, as I do not have access to it.
