My own opinion:
Personally I think this is a very beautiful masterpiece. It is true art and I would love to read more of these Chinese tales, poems and songs. This of course is only a translation and I believe the original versions are even more beautiful. Nonetheless the combination of the calm illustrations that enhanced the literature with the actual literature was very lovely. And the explanations at the end of each “One Shot” helped very much as I didn’t know the tales and poems beforehand.
