9781906230371: The Water Margin (Chinese Classics)

Although Song Jiang is only a lowly local government official, he is loyal to the emperor and kind to all the citizens in his care. But Song is in trouble. A series of unfortunate incidents have led to him being arrested, and his political enemies are keen to see him sentenced to death. There is still hope, however. One hundred and eight brave bandits from Mount Liang have heard of Song’s good name – they are willing to rescue him as long as Song will lead them in rebelling against the corrupt government. Will Song agree to become an outlaw? Will he be able to tread the narrow path between right and wrong? Will justice eventually prevail over corruption and the misuse of power? Real Reads are accessible texts designed to support the literacy development of primary and lower secondary age children while introducing them to the riches of our international literary heritage. Each book is a retelling of a work of great literature from one of the world’s greatest cultures, fitted into a 64-page book, making classic stories, dramas and histories available to intelligent young readers as a bridge to the full texts, to language students wanting access to other cultures, and to adult readers who are unlikely ever to read the original versions.

About the Author:

SHI NAI'AN (1296―1371), was a classical Chinese author attributed as the first compiler of Water Margin from Suzhou. Some modern scholars doubt that Shi actually existed, and believe his was a teacher of Luo Guanzhong, who was attributed as a main compiler of Romance of Three Kingdoms.

CHRISTINE SUN was born in Taiwan, and studied English and Chinese literature at The Ohio State and Monash Universities. She now lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she teaches Chinese Literature and runs eBook Dynasty, a leading publisher of Chinese ebooks, promoting the writings of both English and Chinese writers as Chinese ebooks.

SHIRLEY CHANG was born in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1974. In 1997 she graduated from Tunghai University with a BA in Fine Art, going on to obtain an MA in Illustration from the University of Central England in 2000. Her work has been selected in Student Design Year Book 2000, Image26/The Best of British contemporary illustration 2000, and Calendar 365.
