Description

A particularly fascinating theme concerns the logistical challenge posed by Wall building: three stories deal with the task of working and transporting heavy, bulky building materials, and the ingenious methods devised. Another prominent theme is that of heartbroken families, wrought by conscription or brought by battle, with a wife being widowed. Food and its sourcing is another popular theme, for the task of self sufficiency of the Wall builders went alongside construction work and sentry work, and the challenge was accentuated by the infertility of the soil and relief of the terrain. Forces other than nature were perceived as factors influencing good harvests, and readers will learn the importance of the traditional and semi- mysterious practice of geomancy. While much of the folktales’ content is set against a true background, there is much fantasy as well. In an era when storytelling and music were the sole entertainments, far-fetched embellishments and sheer fiction naturally became welcome components to enhance the entertainment value of a story, many of which were told in teahouses and could be a source of livelihood for a successful teller.
