Description du livre Rutland, Vermont: Charles E. Tuttle Company, (1973)., 1973. Two volumes. Octavo, red & black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, paper sleeves, slipbox, map illus. endpapers, viii + 623 pp; xviii + 638 pp. Near-Fine in a worn slipcase. From sleeves: Romance of the Three Kingdoms is regarded by the Chinese as their greatest novel. Its perennial allure, by no means diminished in the China of today, springs mainly from its basis in exciting historical fact and its telling portrayal of human ambition against a background of adventure and intrigue. No less fascinating are its accounts of human nature in reaction against the arbitrary restraints imposed by a conformist society. Through its pages, as through the length of a Chinese picture scroll, passes a continuous spectacle of striking scenes and events, each completely absorbing in itself but at the same time playing its part in the grand over-all design. These scenes are peopled with hundreds of colorful characters that bring to the novel its dramatic power and its frequently astonishing realism. Its enduring popularity, in fact, stems no less from its remarkable characterizabtions than from its wealth of theatrical incident, and it is hardly surprising to note that the Romance is the ultimate source for hundreds of spine-tingling plots in the modern Chinese opera repertoire.
