Abstract：The search for drama literature of more than 10 years in the early 21st century is both an opportunity and a challenge. Via researchers’tireless effort, new discoveries have been made, including three new dramatic genres mentioned in the Yongle Encyclopaedia. Some of the newly discovered works are dramatic while others are lost works or manuscripts. The discoveries also include some historical documents and cultural relics. All these are supportive for the development of drama studies, which tends to be more inter-disciplinary and extensive in scope.
