The presentation illustrates the raw materials in the making of The Story of the Stone, the Hawkes-Minford translation of Hongloumeng. This is a study of the translators at work. The research draws mainly from The Story of the Stone: A Translator’s Notebooks, documenting the extensive range of research materials consulted by Professor Hawkes in his rendition of The Story of the Stone. Furthermore, Professor Minford’s first-hand knowledge in deciphering the intricate, scholarly process in the rendition provides valuable insight into the research of translation and Hongloumeng.
