In this study, author Nancy A. Mace rectifies the lack of scholarly attention given Henry Fielding's use of the classical tradition in his novels, periodical essays, and miscellaneous writings. Although scholars have extensively studied the affinities between Henry Fielding's novels and such modern genres as the romance, travel literature, and criminal biography, they have paid surprisingly little attention to his use of the classical tradition in developing both his narrative theory and practice.

Beginning with Rudyard Kipling and Edith Nesbit and concluding with best-selling series still ongoing at the time of writing, this volume examines works of twentieth- and twenty-first-century children's literature that incorporate character types, settings, and narratives derived from the Greco-Roman past. Drawing on a cognitive poetics approach to reception studies, it argues that authors typically employ a limited and powerful set of spatial metaphors - palimpsest, map, and fractal - to organize the classical past for preteen and adolescent readers. Palimpsest texts see the past as a collection of strata in which each new era forms a layer superimposed upon a foundation laid earlier; map texts use the metaphor of the mappable journey to represent a protagonist's process of maturing while gaining knowledge of the self and/or the world; fractal texts, in which small parts of the narrative are thematically identical to the whole, present the past in a way that implies that history is infinitely repeatable. While a given text may embrace multiple metaphors in presenting the past, associations between dominant metaphors, genre, and outlook emerge from the case studies examined in each chapter, revealing remarkable thematic continuities in how the past is represented and how agency is attributed to protagonists: each model, it is suggested, uses the classical past to urge and thus perhaps to develop a particular approach to life.

Water Margin (水浒传), one of the four Chinese classics (四大名著), is a chapter-style (章回体) novel compiled by Shi Nai'an (施耐庵) in the late Yuan and early Ming Dynasty (元末明初). The 14th-century Chinese novel, also known as Outlaws of the Marsh/Shuihuzhuan, mainly describes the story of 108 bandit-heroes, headed by Song Jiang (宋江), gathered in Liangshan, Shandong (山东梁山) in the late Northern Song Dynasty (北宋末年). Through the description of the grand story of Liangshan heroes resisting oppression, their growth and various campaigns, recruitment of heroes by the Song Dynasty, and the grand narrative of the final demise of the Song Dynasty, the Chinese literary masterpiece artistically reflects the whole process of the Songjiang Uprising (宋江起义) in Chinese history from its occurrence, development to failure. The novel profoundly reveals the social roots of the uprising, enthusiastically praises the resistance struggle of the heroes of the uprising and their social ideals, and also categorically describes the inherent historical reasons for the failure of the uprising. "Water Margin" is one of the four great Chinese classical novels. After it came out, it had a huge social impact and became a model of Chinese novel creation in the later generations. In Chinese history (中国历史), "Water Margin" is one of the first chapter-style stories written in the vernacular (白话文), rather than Classical Chinese (古文). It is also one of the works with epic characteristics in Chinese language and literature. It has a profound influence on narrative literature in China and even East Asia. As such, the novel is well-known in China. No wonder, if you are learning Mandarin Chinese language, you are highly recommended to appreciate this literary masterpiece. Kindle Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B08FDML26V Paperback Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B08F6TF99X The book has 10 chapters in the following order (pay attention to the name of the heroes (e.g. 宋江) and their nicknames (e.g. 及时雨)): Chapter 1: Song Jiang (第一章:及时雨宋江) Chapter 2: Lin Chong (第二章:豹子头林冲) Chapter 3: Lu Zhishen (第三章:花和尚鲁智深) Chapter 4: Wu Yong (第四章:智多星吴用) Chapter 5: Lu Junyi (第五章:玉麒麟卢俊义) Chapter 6: Wu Song (第六章:行者武松) Chapter 7: Li Kui (第七章:黑旋风李逵) Chapter 8: Shi Xiu (第八章:拼命三郎石秀) Chapter 9: Qin Ming (第九章:霹雳火秦明) Chapter 10: Yang Zhi (第十章:青面兽杨志) The current book volume, China's Great Classical Novels 3, is a Level 6 Chinese reading practice book. It would introduce you to the famous Chinese novel Water Margin (simplified edition). The 3rd volume in the Classical Novels of Chinese Literature (中国古典文学) series includes both the Chinese text (simplified characters) and pinyin Romanization. With about over 1300 unique Chinese characters, the volume would be suitable for the lower intermediate and advanced level Chinese language learners (HSK 3-6). Overall, the reading series offers you a variety of elementary level books (Level 1/2/3/4/5/6) to understand China as well as practice Chinese reading fast.

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels--both American and European--that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840-1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War--the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction--is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840s and 1850s.

Fiction on the Fringe

This collection of essays offers a comprehensive examination of texts that traditionally have been excluded from the main corpus of the ancient Greek novel and confined to the margins of the genre, such as the Life of Aesop, the Life of Alexander the Great, and the Acts of the Christian Martyrs. Through comparison and contrast, intertextual analysis and close examination, the boundaries of the dichotomy between the fringe vs. the canonical or erotic novel are explored, and so the generic identity of the texts in each group is more clearly outlined. The collective outcome brings the fringe from the periphery of scholarly research to the centre of critical attention, and provides methodological tools for the exploration of other fringe texts.

Romance of The Three Kingdoms (三国演义), originally written about 600 years ago by Luo Guanzhong (罗贯中, 1330 AD - 1400 AD), a pioneering work of historical romance novels, is one of the four classic novels of Chinese literature. It is also first literary novel and the first Zhanghui (章回) style novel in the history of the Chinese literary tradition (in the Zhanghui style of traditional Chinese novel, each chapter is headed by a couplet providing the essence of the corresponding text). The novel narrates the period of Chinese history of nearly a hundred years from the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty (东汉, 25 AD - 220 AD) to the beginning of the Western Jin Dynasty (西晋, 266 AD - 316 AD). It mainly describes the wars and battles among the heroes in the late Eastern Han Dynasty (东汉末年) and the political and military struggles among the Wei (魏), Shu (蜀), and Wu (吴) Kingdoms (三国). In the end, Sima Yan (司马炎) unified the three kingdoms and established the Jin Dynasty (晋朝). The story thoroughly reflects the transformation of various social struggles, contradictions in the era of the Three Kingdoms and summarizes the historical changes of the contemporary era shaping a group of heroic figures of the Three Kingdoms. Kindle Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B087PKJ8YM Paperback Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B087R5Q4LH The book has 6 chapters in the following order: Chapter 1: A Group of Men Competing Against Dong Zhuo (第一回: 群雄逐鹿扳倒董卓) Chapter 2: Defeat of Yuan Shao (第二回: 曹吕之争大败袁绍) Chapter 3: Liu Sun and the Three Kingdoms (第三回: 三国鼎立之刘孙合作) Chapter 4: First Sight of the Three Kingdoms (第四回: 魏蜀吴三国初见端倪) Chapter 5: Three-pointed World (第五回: 三分天下诸葛军师定乾坤) Chapter 6: The Unification (第六回: 天下一统晋国成立) The current book volume, China's Great Classical Novels 2, is a Level 6 Chinese reading practice book.
