Zhong Sicheng ?-c.1360

Yuan-dynasty writer. After repeated failure in the civil service examinations, Zhong devoted himself to writing, and had extensive contacts with other authors of qu poetry. His most important work is the Lu gui bu [Ghost register], a manual of playwrights and their plays. This was completed in 1330 and revised several times afterwards. None of Zhong's own plays have survived, but 59 single-stanza verses are extant.
