Lioness Roars: Shrew Stories From Late Imperial China-Cl (Paperback)Wu (author)
Paperback Published: 30/03/2010
- We can order this
This anthology offers translations of seven stories and one novella from the 17th and 18th centuries, with a critical introduction and bibliography. To date there are no translations from the premodern period which focus exclusively on women, let alone the image of the shrew. These stories are among the most representative and memorable of those featuring the prototypical Chinese shrew, a prominent figure in premodern Chinese fiction and drama. Unique in being thematically organized, The Lioness Roars provides manageable (and fun) literary source readings for courses on Chinese women, Chinese history or Chinese literature.
