This review is from: Emperor Huizong (Hardcover)
The Emperor Huizong is certainly an interesting figure and I was certainly looking forward to reading this biography. Unfortunately, the thematic approach the author takes, particularly towards Huizong's creative activity, means that information gets repeated - sometimes several tines - and the narrative flow is lost. This id written for other academics to admire rather than for anyone to enjoy reading, and after a while it grows tiring. There is much here to learn, but it could be prsented much more engagingly.
