世說新語 Shishuo Xinyu - Waar de wereld over praat, nieuwe collectie

[ Shih-shuo Hsin-yu].
Engelse titel: New account of tales of the world

Een verzameling van meer dan duizend historische anekdotes en karakterschetsen samengesteld door Liu Yiqing (403-444).

Wikipedia: The book contains around 1,130 historical anecdotes and character sketches of around 600 literati, musicians and painters who lived in the Han and Wei–Jin periods (2nd-4th centuries). Chapter 19, for instance, has 32 stories about outstanding women. It is thus both a biographical source and a record of colloquial language. (..) Although most of the anecdotes and personalities are attested in other sources, traditional Chinese bibliographers did not classify Shishuo Xinyu as history but as a novel / "minor talk" (小说 xiao shuo), a term that was later used to refer to fiction.
