Dream of the Red Chamber originally The Story of the Stone is a masterpiece of Chinese literature and one of the Chinese Four Great Classical Novels. It was composed in the mid 18th century during the Qing Dynasty. It is attributed to Cao Xueqin and generally acknowledged as the seminal work of classical Chinese literature. The novel is believed to be semi-autobiographical, mirroring the fortunes of Cao's own family. As the author details in the first chapter, it is intended to be a memorial to the women he knew in his youth: friends, relatives and servants. -- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
