Owen Holloway talks about a celebrated collection of Chinese stories, the Liao Chai Chih I.
These stories by P'u Sung-ling, who lived in the seventeenth century, have recently been fully translated into a European language for the first time; the translation, by Ludovico Nicola di Giura, is into Italian, I racconti fantastici di Liao. In the speaker's opinion the collection is one of the classics of world literature.
