Renditions no. 98 (Autumn 2022)
Renditions no. 98 provides an eclectic mix of poetry, prose, and fiction from as early as the Northern Wei to the 1950s by influential politicians or acclaimed writers. Highlights include poems by the famous playwright and critic Li Yu 李漁, an early-Qing vernacular story ‘A Miser Digs New Pits and Makes a Load of Money’ 掘新坑慳鬼成財主, which traces out an unorthodox path to riches and fame of a rural family, and a collection of three stories written by the revered Liu Yichang 劉以鬯 during his sojourn in Singapore. The issue concludes with a review by David L. Rolston on one of the latest books dealing with the classic The Story of the Stone.
