Description

The 18th-century Chinese poet, Yuan Mei, also wrote some short fiction - "Censored by Confucius" - which is reproduced here. The stories offer insights into Mei's views on crime, sex, the status of women, homosexuality, miscarriage of justice, ghosts, revenge and conservative morality.

Table of Contents

"The one hundred-some stories depict the important role ghosts played in the lives of the Chinese, as well as revealing a great deal about sex, revenge, transvestism, corruption, and other topics banned by Mei's puritanical mid-Qing society". -- Reference & Research Book News.
