Feng Menglong

Feng Menglong (simplified Chinese: 冯梦龙; traditional Chinese: 馮夢龍; pinyin: Féng Mènglóng, 1574-1645) was a Chinese vernacular writer and poet of the late Ming Dynasty. He was born in Changzhou, now Suzhou, in Jiangsu Province, People's Republic of China.

Feng was a proponent of the school of Li Zhi, which supported the importance of human feelings and behavior in literature. Most of his literary work was in editing and compiling histories, almanacs and novels. Two of his noteworthy novels are Pingyao Zhuan and Qing Shi. Another work, Dongzhou Lieguo Zhi ("Romance of the Eastern Zhou Kingdoms") has been turned into a TV show. In 1620 he published the Gujin Xiaoshuo ("Stories Old and New").
