Monks, Bandits, Lovers, and Immortals : Eleven Early Chinese Plays, Hardback Book

Monks, Bandits, Lovers, and Immortals : Eleven Early Chinese Plays Hardback

Description

This magnificent collection of eleven early [1250--1450] Chinese plays will give readers a vivid sense of life and a clear understanding of dramatic literature during an extraordinarily eventful period in Chinese history.

Not only are the eleven plays in this volume expertly translated into lively, idiomatic English; they are each provided with illuminating, scholarly introductions that are yet fully intelligible to the educated lay reader.

A marvelous volume.--Victor Mair, University of Pennsylvania
