Details
The Tale of Heroic Sons and Daughters holds a special position in the history of the Chinese novel. It has been widely popular ever since it was first published. The author, Wen Kang, was a member of the Bordered Red Banner of the ruling Manchu nationality. The tale is a fanciful one. The author uses the technique of the traditional storyteller to unfold the plot and hold the audience spellbound. The narrative is lively and natural. It has its twist and turns, and is not lacking in moments of suspense, minute description and humor. Romance and chivalry are finely enmeshed in the Tale, and the characters are highly individual. The original text was written in a racy, colloquial language, which moved at the fast pace. The present translation is taken from the first 28 chapters of the Tale of Heroic Sons and Daughters.
