A particularly fascinating theme

concerns the logistical challenge posed by Wall building: three

stories deal with the task of working and transporting heavy,

bulky building materials, and the ingenious methods devised.

Another prominent theme is that of heartbroken families, wrought

by conscription or brought by battle, with a wife being widowed.

Food and its sourcing is another popular theme, for the task of

self sufficiency of the Wall builders went alongside construction

work and sentry work, and the challenge was accentuated by the

infertility of the soil and relief of the terrain. Forces other than

nature were perceived as factors influencing good harvests, and

readers will learn the importance of the traditional and semi-

mysterious practice of geomancy.

While much of the folktales’ content is set against a true

background, there is much fantasy as well. In an era when

storytelling and music were the sole entertainments, far-fetched

embellishments and sheer fiction naturally became welcome

components to enhance the entertainment value of a story, many of

which were told in teahouses and could be a source of livelihood

for a successful teller.
