As taken from the Introduction:

The love-affair of young lady Ts'ui Oriolette (Ts'ui Ying-ying) and young scholar Chang-jui is the most famous of China's tales of romance through the ages, and was based on events that happened during the T'ang dynasty (618-907). First written down as a novella, that was assuredly an attempt at self-exculpation by the author, during the T'ang, it became popular as an item of fiction and entertainment.
