Its themes cover a wide cross-section of Chinese society, describing its complex social life, and the populace’s ideas and sentiments. The book is remarkable for its vivid and refined use of a rich vocabulary, life-like characterisation and imagery, and soul touching narration and descriptions. A gem of China’s literature and history.
