Chinese Classics in translation

Merzei (101 posts) • 0


I am interested in reading three of the 'four great classical novels' in English (I've already read - and loved - Journey to the West).

It is not hard to get a copy but there are a bewildering amount of different translations. In my experience the quality of translation can make or break the experience so I was wondering if anybody out there who has read a particularly good edition could recommend one to me.

The titles I am most interested in are:

Water Margin (水浒传)

Romance of the Three Kingdoms (三国演义)

Dream of the Red Chamber (红楼梦)

Any help appreciated!
