Biography

Wang Shifu (Chinese: 王实甫; pinyin: Wáng Shífǔ), courtesy name of Wang Dexin (1250-1337?), was a successful Chinese playwright of the Yuan Dynasty. He was born in Dadu (present-day Beijing), the capital of the Mongol-Yuan Dynasty.

There are 14 plays attributed to Wang and only three are extant. His Romance of the Western Chamber (Xi Xiang Ji) is one of the most famous Chinese plays and is still popular today. It is an amplified zaju (杂剧), a then popular theatrical form.
