Product Description

From the Back Cover

The popularity of the Chinese story-teller goes back to the market place of the T'ang dynasty, but the familiar figure came into his own in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and his audience included not only the populace but men of leisure and the Emperor as well. This selection of six stories from Feng Meng-lung's collection includes representative types of the story-teller's traditional art.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Collection 6 Feb. 2009
By T. Hooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a delightful collection of six Chinese folktales. These span the range from historical tales to morality tales to outright fairytales. These tales come from the tradition of the streetside storytellers that populated the streets of old China. The streetside stories reflect the earthy nature of the people who listened to them as highlighted in the story "The Pearl-sewn Shirt", a tale of seduction and intrigue. Despite the earthy nature of the tales, there is always a moral ending to the story which leaves the reader with a sense that all is right in the world.

I recommend this to those who would like to read tales from old China. These were created for the general public, so they are very entertaining and easy to read. I believe anyone would find these a pleasure to read.
