Abstract: This thesis assesses Wang Ruoxu, a central figure in late Jin literary revival, and his writing. Wang is important to researchers because he is one of the few Jin literati whose literary collections have been preserved. His writings are characterized by a strong sense of criticism. The majority of his collection is constituted by critical essays. Wang?s critical essays provide the foundation for answering questions such as how he criticized his peers in both Jin and Southern Song, and engaged himself in the cultural tradition. This thesis attempts to answer the questions by looking into the details of the text of Wang?s writings, analyzing his tactics, and trying to understand his position through detailed discussion of his critical works. Understanding Wang?s scholarly endeavor will be helpful for understanding the intellectual history of Northern China during the Song-Jin-Yuan period.
