More About The Lost Poems of Cangjie by John Briscoe
 
 
 
Overview

Briscoe's The Lost Poems of Cangjie, published by RiskPress, are translations of recently discovered poems of the Chinese historical figure Cangjie, storied inventor of the Chinese system of writing during the reign of The Yellow Emperor, Huangdi, in the 27th century BCE, approximately 4700 years ago.

(Some scholars do not believe there was a Yellow Emperor, just as they once believed there was no Xia dynasty. Evidence unearthed in the city of Yanshi in 1959, however, proved the existence of the Xia, which ruled after the time of the Yellow Emperor from approximately 2100 to 1800 BCE. The discoveries of Cangjie's poems may prove the existence of the Yellow Emperor.)
