Product Overview

Beyond Eroticism translates and analyzes over forty songs and ninety jokes from Child''s Folly, a trilogy of popular songs (Hanging Twigs), folk songs (Hill Songs), and jokes (Treasury of Laughs) compiled by Feng Menglong (1574-1646), and giant in late Ming popular literature (1368-1644). Focusing on humor as the predominant characteristic of the "tactically forgotten" collections, the book offers a delightful study of the foibles, eccentricities, and anxieties of a broad cross section of late Ming society.
