Sound rising from the paper

by Paize Keulemans | 02 December 2014
Synopsis
Chinese martial arts novels from the late nineteenth century are filled with a host of suggestive sounds. Characters cuss and curse in colourful dialect accents, vendor calls ring out from bustling marketplaces, and martial arts action scenes come to life with the loud clash of swords and the sounds of bodies colliding. What is the purpose of these sounds, and what is their history? In this book, Keulemans answers these questions by critically re-examining the relationship between martial arts novels published in the final decades of the nineteenth century and earlier storyteller manuscripts.
