The Discourse on Foxes and Ghosts: Ji Yun and Eighteenth-century Literati Storytelling
The Discourse on Foxes and Ghosts: Ji Yun and Eighteenth-Century Literal Storytelling takes as its subject the eighteenth-century zhiguai (stories of the strange). The focus is on Ji Yun's (1724-1805) Random Jottings at the Cottage of Close Scrutiny (Yuewei caotang biji), but extensive reference is also made to other collections published at about the same time and earlier works in the genre, from the Six Dynasties down to the Ming.
