An Ode to the Goddess of Luo is a poetic prose by Cao Zhi, a renowned poet and essayist of the Han Dynasty ( AD 25-220). The poet narrates his encounter with the astonishingly beautiful Goddess of Luo, how they fall in love with each other, and the inevitable sad ending to their romance.

A series of illustrations created by post-90s illustrator Ye Luying has recently drawn people's attention to this Chinese prose.

Ye is an independent illustrator and designer, who studied at the China Academy of Art and Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She has already published several picture books prior to the goddess of Luo series.
