Summary
"Describes the commemoration within Chinese literature and culture of the ancient southern kingdom of Wu, which collapsed in 473 BCE. This book, through an analysis of the history of Wu as recorded in ancient Chinese texts and then of its literary legacy, illuminates the remarkable cultural endurance of this powerful but short-lived kingdom"--Provided by publisher
