Liu Yiqing 劉義慶

periode: 403-444

 

Liu Yiqing (403–444) was one of the most important figures in the history of early medieval Chinese culture. Liu’s importance lies not only in his princely social status, but also in the two noted collections of tales which are attributed to him: Shishuo xinyu (New Account of Tales of the World) and Youming lu (Records of the Hidden and Visible Realms). The former is the quintessential work of zhiren (‘‘accounts of men’’), while the latter is a representative work of zhiguai (‘‘accounts of anomalies’’).The collections of tales, especially the Shishuo xinyu, have been the subject of numerous studies, but until now Liu Yiqing’s life has never been fully studied.
