Memory Making in Folk Epics of China: The Intimate and the Local in Chinese Regional Culture Anne E. McLaren

Memory Making in Folk Epics of China: The Intimate and the Local in Chinese Regional Culture by Anne E. McLaren

“This book provides a clearly written introduction to and study of an important tradition of Chinese folk epic. It is the first in-depth Western-language monograph on the long narrative ‘mountain songs’ from the Wu-dialect area around Lake Taihu. As such, it is an important contribution to the study of Chinese folk literature and regional culture. It should appeal to all lovers of Chinese and comparative literature. The topics treated in the songs should also be of interest to students of Chinese (and comparative) religion, Chinese social history and Chinese gender studies. The book’s clear style makes it accessible to undergraduate students.” —Wilt Idema, Harvard University
