Thousand Pieces of Gold: My Discovery of China’s Character in its Proverbs
Adeline Yen Mah (au). A cultural memoir as well as a personal account of China’s past, illustrated by proverbs taken from a fascinating period of history when China was ruled by the First Emperor, Qin Shihuang (259-210 B.C.), the sovereign who united China, built the Great Wall, & standardized the Chinese language. Mah combines fascinating historical insights with stories from her own life to show the enduring relevance & influence of proverbs in Chinese life, even to the present day. She recreates a lost world in which warlords, scholars, & courtiers plot & counter-plot to create some of history’s greatest dramas. Combining historical analysis with stories of tremendous personal insight, this is a work of intimacy & a singularly authentic portrait of Chinese culture. Drawings.
