The love between Li Longji and Yang Yuhuan is more than the simple love between an emperor and his imperial concubine. It comes close to a concept of love that ordinary citizens gleaned from novels written in the Song and Yuan dynasties.

The story comments indirectly on the period’s social and political lives and touches on issues such as the misery caused by the wealthy and their excesses. In this respect it breaks the mold of stories based entirely on brilliant men and beautiful women and adds a deeper meaning to the story. With b&w illustrations.
