Chapter Summary

Lord Chunshen of Chu, one of the four great lords of the Warring States era, was a figure of great importance in the early history of the city of Suzhou. Lord Chunshen seems to have been much admired as the man who had restored the city to a semblance of its pre-conquest importance. This chapter of the Yuejue shu, in which Lord Chunshen survives his encounter with Li Yuan and his sister, represents a largely independent tradition which was apparently not among the sources used by Sima Qian when writing his great history.

Keywords: Chu; Chunshen; Yuejue shu
