Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter of the Yuejue shu, consists largely of a conversation between an intelligent reader and the compilers of the text. It provides a guidance for how to read and understand the texts compiled into this anthology. The chapter also provides the most comprehensive editorial comments and reading notes to have survived in ancient Chinese literature, and also a unique window into how events in the late Spring and Autumn period were understood at the very beginning of the Eastern Han dynasty. It presents a very detailed account of how to understand the story of Wu Zixu's rise and fall.

Keywords: Han dynasty; Wu Zixu; Yuejue shu
