The Kim Vân Kiều was written by Nguyễn Du (1765-1820), a high-ranking mandarin of the imperial court. This long text of 3354 verses is considered by the Vietnamese not only as the masterpiece of their literature, but also as the mirror of the Vietnamese soul. This work is classified by UNESCO as part of the intangible heritage.
