The chapter titles of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils are verses that make up five poems.
The title of each chapter is a verse and the ten chapters in each book actually forms a poem. Each book is named after the tone pattern used for that poem.
《少年游》Adventures of the Youth – featuring Duan Yu
The righteous scholar travelled the perilous peak,
Moonlight shone brightly on the beautiful cliff.
A swift horse with a masked lady,
High on the cliff away from others,
Tiny steps borne from ripples.
Whose disciple and whose estate,
Helplessly regret being unfaithful,
Majestic and resounding music,
A lady married to a fitting place,
Gleaming sword across dark smoke.
《苏幕遮》Shrouding Screen in Suzhou – featuring Qiao Feng and Duan Yu
Listening to the lady in the waterside pavilion, watching her advise the gathered heroes.
Unrestrained drinking of a thousand cups at a men’s gathering,
In the forest of apricots, discussing the meaning of life.
Reasons of the past,
Wishes of the present,
Vengeance of a foreign man, suppresses the emptying of a hero’s tears.
Even in the face tens of thousand people I will carry on,
