Chinese Character Flashcards (Traditional Version)

The Red Brush project is a collection of texts in Chinese from a wide range of writings from Imperial China, by and about women writers. The website for this collection is available in both English and Chinese.

This site contains Chinese classics with each character hyperlinked to its definition and etymology. No Chinese software is necessary - characters are displayed as images. Links to English translations are included for most works.
