Vietnamese literature has been fed by two great tributaries: the indigenous oral literature and the written literature of Chinese influence. In his talk, John Balaban will present examples of both traditions, including tape recordings that he made during the war of the sung ca dao poetry, followed by poems in the lu-shih tradition written by an extraordinary woman who flourished in the early 18th century, Hồ Xuân Hương.
