    About this book

This collection of short stories, anecdotes, and poems was likely compiled during the 13th century. Tales of romantic love--including courtship, marriage, and illicit affairs--unify the collection and make it an essential primary source for literary and social history, since official Chinese history sources did not usually discuss family conflict or sexual matters.This volume, the first complete translation of 'The Drunken Man's Talk' (Xinbian zuiweng tanlu) in any language, includes an introduction that explores the literary significance of the work as well as annotations explaining the symbolism and allusions found in the stories.
