Wu, Ching-tzu, Yang, Hsien-Yi , Yang, Gladys

SUMMARY

A masterpiece from the Ming dynasty, Wu Ching-tzu's The Scholarsranks with Dream of the Red Chamber, Journey to the West, and the Water Marginas one of the greatest classic novels of China. The Scholarsis the first Chinese novel of its scope not to borrow any characters from history or legend and it is the first work of satiric realism to achieve an almost complete disassociation from the religious beliefs of the people. Departing from the impersonal tradition of Chinese fiction, Wu abandons such established narrative formulas as folk songs and poetic verse in favor of autobiographical experiences, descriptive realism, and characters modeled after his friends and relatives -- elements that combine to give this critique of the Confucian civil service system an unprecedented immediacy and humor.Wu, Ching-tzu is the author of 'Scholars', published 1993 under ISBN 9780231081535 and ISBN 0231081537.
