The Song of Zie-gha-lao.

Collected by Lu Xing-fu.


In this version of the song of Zie-gha-lao, collected in the Mi-er-gou area in 1947, Lu Xing-fu covers the same ground as Yang Zhi, but omits much of the descriptive detail. Thus Zie-gha-laoís agricultural activities are reduced to only two fifths of the total song. There is no sign in this version of the deliberate alterations to the text which are found in the later copies of Yang Zhiís version.
