Kuafu Chases the Sun (Review 3)

In Search of Ancient Civilization
'I like Kuafu Chases the Sun, and thus I took the time to understand both versions as contained in the Classic of Mountains and Seas as well as Kuafu Chases the Sun. The former is a Pre-Qin dynasty classic split into the Mountains Classic as well as the Seas Classic, and is the oldest geographical work rich in ancient legends.

In both interpretations of the Kuafu legend, Kuafu's spirit of persistence is obvious. My darling Jiajia had appreciated this point as well. Kuafu's courage, strength, willpower and nobility in sacrificing himself for the sake of his people shows how humans are able to overcome the trials of nature through pure determination and aspiration; on the flip side, it also illustrates a foolhardy over-estimation of one's skills.'
