    Abstract:
    This dissertation aims to study the sightseeing of imperial Chinese literati at West Lake (Xihu 西湖) with an emphasis on the “mentality of sightseeing”: the motivations, attitudes towards sightseeing, tastes and values etc. While the study spans a period from from mid Ming to early Qing, a series of texts written during this period on the sightseeing at West Lake will be investigated. Taking West Lake as a “case study”, this dissertation will hopefully provide a glimpse of the sightseeing culture, which had played an important role in the social lives of Chinese literati of this period and the construction of their identity.
