The Literature of the Chinese

Success

Chinese literature is so extensive that a catalogue of the books in the four imperial libraries of the present dynasty classifies and briefly describes no less than ninety-three thousand books, and itself fills two hundred volumes! Although some western writers have described the collection as a whole as a vast library of Oriental conceit and a dreary wilderness of words, the Abbe Remusat, a genuine student of the Chinese language, wrote enthusiastically regarding their charm, saying he found in them "eloquence and poetry, enriched by the beauty of a picturesque language preserving to imagination all its colors." The description is a very accurate one, too. — Success.
