The Plum in the Golden Vase or, Chin P’ing Mei:
Volume Five: The Dissolution
Translated by David Tod Roy

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

Praise for the previous volumes:"Reading Roy's translation is a remarkable experience."--Robert Chatain, Chicago Tribune Review of Books

Praise for the previous volumes:"Clearly David Roy is the greatest scholar-translator in the field of premodern vernacular Chinese fiction. . . . The puns and various other kinds of word plays that abound in the Chin P'ing Mei are so difficult to translate that I can't help 'slapping the table in amazement' each time I see evidence of Roy's masterful rendition of them. . . . I recommend this book, in the strongest possible terms, to anyone interested in the novel form in general, in Chinese literature in particular, or in the translation of Chinese literature."--Shuhui Yang, Chinese Literature: Essays, Articles, Reviews
