The Golden Casket: Chinese Novellas of Two Millennia


The Golden Casket contains a selection  of forty-six stories written in the Chines literary language. Though not the most highly esteemed class of literature, these novellas were composed by educated men for an educated public: they portray, according to their periods, the feats of knights and heroes, the conflict of love and duty, situations which are unusual or erotic , or even miraculous and ghostly events. The collection provides a sweeping panorama of Chinese life and thought during two millennia, from the Han dynasties to the flowering of the novella in the Ming dynasty and on into more modern times.
