Chapter Summary

The "Record of Fanbo" represents an early stage in the development of Fan Li's biography. This chapter of the Yuejue shu focuses on his achievements as a poor and unknown individual who raised himself entirely through his own efforts to the position of trusted advisor to one of the greatest of all rulers in the Spring and Autumn period, King Goujian of Yue. Fan Li is credited in this, with a crucial role in supporting his master through the difficult years following his surrender at Kuaiji. He is also said to have been instrumental in planning the final victory over the kingdom of Wu in 473 BCE.
