Abstract

This thesis, based on Green Snake, The Reincarnation of Golden Lotus and Rouge, three novels written by Hong Kong author Lilian Lee, discusses the respective supernatural heroines in relation to the Chinese folklore and to the Hong Kong status quo before the 1997 Handover, seeking to find the allegorical significance behind the heroines beyond the genre of fantastic.
