Reviews for The Ballad of Mulan
mary chapter 1 . 4/1/2016
Wow, that is one cool poem. 10 years!? Wow.. the original Mulan was way tougher and braver and awesomer than the disney version. I bet it was a true story too, its got names, time, specific characters like a older sister and little brother etc.

I'm glad to have read this - the story holds more appeal this way, because I know only Disney's version. In yours, the passage of time is greater and the family dynamics different, because of the number of siblings. Good job!

Translating? Tough. Translating ancient poetry? Tricky and difficult. Translating ancient poetry and making it sound awesome? Just shows how amazing your skills as a poet are.

This is a really great translation. Much easier to stomach and enjoyable to read than the translations found in your typical archive. Thank you.

It's gives hope to see someone take the effort to dig to the roots for a passion.

Oh my gosh, thank you so much for posting this! The entire story makes sense now. I'm so happy you made it known how Disney got the idea. :) You're awesome!

This is fantastic! I totally love this! You know, for the longest time, I thought that Mulan had actually been killed because she was found out. I'm so relieved to know that she wasn't!
