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

Voorkant
Hackett Publishing, 1 mrt. 2010 - 522 pagina's
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.

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