"The Water Margin" is one of the four famous Chinese classics, and it is a chapter novel written by Shi Naiyang in the late Yuan Dynasty and early Ming Dynasty. After it came out, it had a huge impact on society, and became a model for later Chinese novel creation. At the same time, it is also one of the earliest Zhanghui novels written in vernacular in Chinese history. It is widely spread and popular. It is also one of the epic works in Chinese language and literature, which has a profound impact on Chinese and East Asian narrative literature.
Looking at "
The Water Margin" for the third time this year, I felt that Liangshan 108's nickname was very interesting. Based on his understanding of the characters, they designed their nicknames, sharing some of them first, and then sharing them in several issues.
