  • About the Book
  • This volume has its origins in the project “Large-scale Registration of Chinese Storytelling,” which involved the recording on film of 360 hours of performances by the four masters of Yangzhou storytelling, Dai Buzhang, Fei Zhengliang, Gao Zaihua, and Ren Jitang. Four sets of these films have been deposited (in Washington D.C., Taipei, Beijing, and Copenhagen) so that future generations of scholars will have access to this unique material. With all text appearing in both English and Chinese and with its subject matter brought alive by a wealth of photographs plus a 60-minute film on VCD, this volume promises to be a classic work in its field.
