6 year dead thread, come back!
i've been watching the mid-90's CCTV "water margin" serial, and it is awesome. i want to read it, but need to pick an english translation. any recommendation?
same question for journey to the west and hong lou meng, which i'm also learning from TV, but WM really is more my style (i'll get to the others eventually).
relatedly, has anyone ever seen dual english/chinese text versions of any of the classic chinese novels? it would have to be multi-volume whatever book it was, but you'd think some must have been published.. i read Lu Xun's "true story of Ah Q" a while back, first in english, then in chinese, and it was productive - i know the classic novels aren't as colloquial and modern in their writing, but still, i'd like to give a few chapters a try, and on paper (i get so sick of staring at this screen).
