Origin of the Chapter's Title

Chapter 3's title 客从远方来 (Kè cóng yuǎn fāng lái) is one of the only two poetry tittles, the other one being Book 1 Chapter 1's, that are not from the Classic of Poetry nor the Song Dynasty.

The title 客从远方来 is the 18th poem from the Nineteen Old Poems, an anthology of poems collected during the Han Dynasty. Chapter 1's title is also this anthology.

客从远方来 means A Guest From Far Away [1].

An English translation of the poem can be found here.
