".... a unique collection of Chinese writings on poetics and prosody ... (Kūkai) collected some of the earliest discussions of the "four tones and eight faults" of Shen Yue, as well as several important works of literary criticism, chief among which is the Shige of Tang poet Wang Changling .... an invaluable source for studying the development of Chinese shi poetry from the Six Dynasties to the mid-Tang." --Cf.
