Inhaltsangabe: This is the first attempt ever made at a systematic analysis of classical Chinese supernatural fiction known as zhiguai under the morphological framework designed by Vladimir Propp (1928) and later developed by Alan Dundes (1964). The focus is on a synchronic presentation of textual features and structural patterns of zhiguai fiction, but the book includes a general review of zhiguai literature from Sahnhai Jin to Liaozhai Zhiyi.
