Product Description

This book includes thirty-five stories about not being afraid of ghosts, which are taken from ancient Chinese collections of tales and anecdotes. They show the adroitness and courage of Chinese people in ancient times who dared to defy ghosts. Today, everyone knows there are no such things as ghosts. But while there are no demons like those described in these tales, there are many things which resemble them -- imperialism, reactionaries, difficulties and obstacles in work, for example. These stories, therefore, may be considered in the nature of allegories and satires.
