Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled One Hundred Thousand Moons contains the table of contents, a list of maps and illustrations, a foreword, the translator's preface, the author's preface and the note on chronology and the sources. The book is written with rich poetic expression, extensive vocabulary, and often clever and amusing adages and similes. The Tibetan text makes very wide use of quotations, and so as the narrative moves through the centuries, it employs a many distinct styles of Tibetan. While the Tibetan language has not drifted as dramatically as English did from Old English up to the modern period, Tibetan vocabulary and expressions have changed since classical times.

Keywords: poetic expression; Tibetan vocabulary
