ALLUSIONS TO CLASSICAL CHINESE
POETRY IN PINK FLOYD
LOG OF UPDATES
The cjvlang site originally went up in mid-July 2000. The Pink Floyd-Chinese poetry project first saw the light of day in late 2000. It was completely rewritten to take into account already-published material in early 2001. Since then I have rewritten some parts, principally the page on the Significance of the Allusions, but for the most part there have not been many changes. This is a record of changes since July 2004 (starting from the bottom).

- Further expanded on A thousand miles of moonlight, including reference to earlier poems on the same theme by Li Po, etc.

- Added one title to Sources.
- Revised and cleaned up HTML code.
31 December 2006 (Beijing)
