Description: Chinese myths were primarily a diffuse and fragmentary oral tradition, eventually preserved in writing only in a piecemeal fashion. Many classical texts are unavailable in translation, and the stories have been unknown to Western readers. Anne Birrell here introduces the general reader to a selection of narratives organized by themes and motifs that help set Chinese myths in the context of world mythology.

The contents include:
-- Origin and creation myths
-- Myths of the flood
-- The divine cosmos
-- Gender in myth
-- Metamorphoses
-- Mythic heroes and heroines
-- Fabled plants and animals
-- Major sources of myth
