The volume also includes "Songs of Flying Dragons", the great eulogy-cycle compiled from 1445-1447. The editor has included oral literature in a section of old songs and shaman songs at the end of the anthology. Within each genre works are arranged chronologically so that the reader can trace the genre's development. The translations have been prepared by distinguished scholars and literary translators and are readable and well annotated.
