The Romance of the Three Kingdoms
Intended to proves the validity of the cyclical view of history, which argues the alternation of unification and division
Expresses author's view on the fleeting times, events, and human existence (lives of nobles and commoners)
On and on the Great River rolls, racing east.
Of proud and gallant heroes its white-tops leave no trace.
As right and wrong, pride and fall turn all unreal.
Yet ever the green hills stay
To blaze in the west-waning day.
Fishers and woodmen bomb the river isles.
White-crowned, they’ve seen enough of spring autumn tide
To make good company over the wine jar,
Where many a famed event
Provides their merriment.
Gaozu of he Han, Woodblock, Qing
Unwilling to take advantage of friends to fulfill his goals
Showed great reluctance to ascend the throne and become emperor of the Riverlands
Had little compunction in sacrificing moral principles for fulfilling life-long dream
Intensely interested in realizing his political ambitionsLiu Bei and His Ambitions
