Based upon the historical bandit Song Jiang and his companions, this Chinese equivalent of the English classic Robin Hood and His Merry Men is an epic tale of rebellion against tyranny and has been thrilling and inspiring readers for hundreds of years. This edition of the classic J. H. Jackson translation features a new preface and introduction by Edwin Lowe, which gives the history of the book and puts the story into perspective for modern readers. First translated into English by Pearl S. Buck in 1933 as All Men Are Brothers, the original edition of the J.H. Jackson translation appeared under the title The Water Margin in 1937. In this updated edition, Edwin Lowe addresses many of the shortcomings found in the original J.H. Jackson translation, and replaces the original grit and flavor of Shuihui Zhuan found in Chinese versions, including the sexual seduction, explicit descriptions of brutality and barbarity, and the profane voices of the thieving, scheming, drinking, fighting, pimping lower classes of Song Dynasty China. Similarly, the Chinese deities, Bodhisattvas, gods and demons have reclaimed their true names, as has the lecherous, over-sexed and ill-fated Ximen Qing. All of which was sanitized out when first published in 1937. While Chinese in origin, the themes of The Water Margin are universal enough that it has served as a source of inspiration for numerous movies, television shows and video games up to the present day.

Water Margin (水浒传), one of the four Chinese classics (四大名著), is a chapter-style (章回体) novel compiled by Shi Nai'an (施耐庵) in the late Yuan and early Ming Dynasty (元末明初). The 14th-century Chinese novel, also known as Outlaws of the Marsh/Shuihuzhuan, mainly describes the story of 108 bandit-heroes, headed by Song Jiang (宋江), gathered in Liangshan, Shandong (山东梁山) in the late Northern Song Dynasty (北宋末年). Through the description of the grand story of Liangshan heroes resisting oppression, their growth and various campaigns, recruitment of heroes by the Song Dynasty, and the grand narrative of the final demise of the Song Dynasty, the Chinese literary masterpiece artistically reflects the whole process of the Songjiang Uprising (宋江起义) in Chinese history from its occurrence, development to failure. The novel profoundly reveals the social roots of the uprising, enthusiastically praises the resistance struggle of the heroes of the uprising and their social ideals, and also categorically describes the inherent historical reasons for the failure of the uprising. "Water Margin" is one of the four great Chinese classical novels. After it came out, it had a huge social impact and became a model of Chinese novel creation in the later generations. In Chinese history (中国历史), "Water Margin" is one of the first chapter-style stories written in the vernacular (白话文), rather than Classical Chinese (古文). It is also one of the works with epic characteristics in Chinese language and literature. It has a profound influence on narrative literature in China and even East Asia. As such, the novel is well-known in China. No wonder, if you are learning Mandarin Chinese language, you are highly recommended to appreciate this literary masterpiece. Kindle Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B08FDML26V Paperback Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B08F6TF99X The book has 10 chapters in the following order (pay attention to the name of the heroes (e.g. 宋江) and their nicknames (e.g. 及时雨)): Chapter 1: Song Jiang (第一章:及时雨宋江) Chapter 2: Lin Chong (第二章:豹子头林冲) Chapter 3: Lu Zhishen (第三章:花和尚鲁智深) Chapter 4: Wu Yong (第四章:智多星吴用) Chapter 5: Lu Junyi (第五章:玉麒麟卢俊义) Chapter 6: Wu Song (第六章:行者武松) Chapter 7: Li Kui (第七章:黑旋风李逵) Chapter 8: Shi Xiu (第八章:拼命三郎石秀) Chapter 9: Qin Ming (第九章:霹雳火秦明) Chapter 10: Yang Zhi (第十章:青面兽杨志) The current book volume, China's Great Classical Novels 3, is a Level 6 Chinese reading practice book. It would introduce you to the famous Chinese novel Water Margin (simplified edition). The 3rd volume in the Classical Novels of Chinese Literature (中国古典文学) series includes both the Chinese text (simplified characters) and pinyin Romanization. With about over 1300 unique Chinese characters, the volume would be suitable for the lower intermediate and advanced level Chinese language learners (HSK 3-6). Overall, the reading series offers you a variety of elementary level books (Level 1/2/3/4/5/6) to understand China as well as practice Chinese reading fast.

This is the third volume of a series of the new translation of the Chinese classical novel generally known as "The Water Margin." In this volume, the company of outlaws on Mount Liang continues to grow: a butcher, a blacksmith, a public executioner, a petty thief... and the usual generals defecting from the government forces. Lu Zhishen, the Flowery Monk, and his companions from Twin Dragon Peak reappear and finally join the company, uniting two important strands of the story. Some episodes are relatively light: a tiger is stolen, an innkeeper's favorite rooster is illicitly eaten, Iron Ox is lowered to the bottom of a well and nearly gets forgotten. But in general the mood is darker. The naked bodies of a lecherous wife is carved up, an innocent child is mercilessly dispatched to gain a reluctant recruit. Chao Gai, the leader on Mount Liang, is killed in battle. Song Jiang replaces him, but for how long can he control his unruly forces? Despite the attraction of the life on the marshes, with its rootless freedom and rough code of honor, we are not to forget how the story was launched, when 108 Demon Princes were released in a black cloud. This series of new translation by John and Alex Dent-Young is also the first English translation of the 120-chapter version of "The Water Margin."

Frank Chin is perhaps the most instantly recognizable voice in Chinese American writing today. A self-proclaimed "transcendent Chinaman pagan heathen barbarian," Chin searches out (or stumbles on) the right people and situations, vividly recording the outcome in distinctively American terms. Here are six of his best essays, spanning the past forty years. Making his way across the U.S. to Cuba, Chin is arrested as an American spy some time between Castro's revolution and the missile crisis. He meets Ben Fee, the man who integrated San Francisco, and is introduced to Southeast Asian gangs and culture in San Diego. He discovers Chinese bachelor society along the California-Mexico border and travels to Singapore, where he speculates on the fear and suppression of Chinese culture among Chinese Singaporeans. Back at the home front, he encounters the new white racism along Interstate 5 during the Gulf War.

Despite the importance of Chen Hongshou (1599-1652) as an artist and scholar of the late Ming period, until now no full length study in English has focused on his work. Author Tamara H. Bentley takes a broadly interdisciplinary approach, treating Chen's oeuvre in relation to literary themes and economic changes, and linking these larger concerns to visual analyses. In so doing, Bentley sheds new light not only on Chen, but also on an important cultural moment in the first half of the seventeenth century, when Chinese scholar artists began to direct their work towards anonymous public markets.

The reigning view of literary historians has been that the May Fourth movement of 1919 marks the division between the traditional and the modern in Chinese literature. This book argues that signs of reform and innovation can be discerned long before May Fourth, and that as China entered the arena of modern, international history in the late Qing, it was already developing its own complex matrix of incipient modernities. It demonstrates that late Qing fiction nurtured a creative, innovative poetics, one that was spurned by the reformers of the May Fourth generation in favor of Western-style realism. The author recognizes that a full account of modern Chinese fiction needs to ask why so many genres, styles, themes, and figures found in late imperial fiction were repressed by "modern" Chinese literary discourse. He focuses on four genres of late Qing fiction that have been either rudely dismissed in pejorative terms or simply ignored: depravity romances, court-case and chivalric cycles, grotesque exposés, and scientific fantasies. The author shows that in spite of the realist orthodoxy that has dominated Chinese literature since the May Fourth movement, these unwelcome genres have continually found their way back into mainstream discourse, their influence being increasingly evident in recent decades. This first comprehensive study of late Qing fiction discusses more than sixty works, at least half of which have rarely or never been dealt with by Western or Chinese scholars. Richly informed by contemporary literary theory, this book constitutes a polemical rethinking of the nature of Chinese literary and cultural modernity.
