    Which books to use to learn Classical Chinese?

    I am looking for some material to help study 文言文. I am currently using Outline of Classical Chinese by Pulleyblank and An Introduction to Literary Chinese by Fuller. I prefer the Fuller book to be honest, even though it gets a lower rating on Amazon. I absolutely hate the Language of the Dragon as I think it is nothing more than a collection of 成语. It also has too much English for me.

    Actually, one of the techniques that I tried and liked is purchasing 初中文言文 [一年版]. This is a textbook that is used in Chinese schools, not sure which year as I have never been able to understand which is which. :wink:

    Any help would be much appreciated.
