In my article, “The Study of Chinese Literature in the West” (JAS, XXXV, 1, Nov 1975), I erroneously stated that Jean-Pierre Dieny's Aux origines de la poésie classique en Chine was concerned with the shih (p. 27). The book is in fact concerned with the yüehfu. The error was due to momentary confusion of this book with another work by the same author, Les Dix-neuf poèmes anciens, which is concerned with the shih. I regret the error and apologize to M. Diény and the readers.
