Excellent Starter Dream of the Red ChamberStory of the Stone two names for the same workThis is an abridged English version of an amazing Chinese novel called Dream of the Red Chamber or Story of the Stone I would recommend reading this if you would like to know the general story which you should as it is one of the most important novels in history This book is HUGE in China it is considered along with one or two other works the pinnacle of Chinese literature And it is much nuanced than the Romeo and Juliet story it is sold as The story is of the downfall of a great house and how it affects the young men and women living there It is remarkable in that it is so much about women at a time when women s lives were considered unimportant It is also defies Confucian s in several ways though adheres to them in others Most points of the author s biography are unknown but it is thought that he belonged to a wealthy family that much like the family in the book came down in the world The book was completed by someone else It is also a good starter version if you are interested in testing it before you delve into the much longer unabridged version Which really you must read After reading this I read the David Hawkes translation 5 volumeswhich I highly recommendEdit I just wanted to add that the main reason I recommend this book as a starter is that it gave me in many places the same emotional punch as the original which I think it a remarkable achievement considering how greatly it has been condensed A Big Sky Christmas just wanted to add that the main reason I recommend this book as a starter is that it gave me in many places the same emotional punch as the original which I think it a remarkable achievement considering how greatly it has been condensed

I just re read this classic of Chinese literature as it s been years since I first read it The Dream of the Red ChamberStory of the Stone is unlike any work in the Western canon yet it fits into the Western tradition of great literature in a way few other examples of classic Chinese writing are able to offering an engrossive narrative and a real feel for both character and place There are aspects of this novel that may confuse the modern reader of it in English translation the many titles and nicknames used for various characters the cuts and transitions that are in places unlike Western narrative and a wealth of Chinese traditions manners and morals that will due to their exoticism and antiuity alike will confound a reader not already aware of ing Dynansty history and culture That said this book is as influential to Chinese culture as Dickens or Austen are to British culture and in movies pop music and certainly contemporary Chinese literature you ll still encounter references to Dream of the Red ChamberThe plot of the novel follows the lives of the Rongguo House and the Ningguo House of the noble and wealthy Jia clan and thus the drama and intrigue visited on these powerful families Much of the emphasis is on plans to marry a son or daughter off to someone or who has the power in a certain household If you enjoy Jane Austen after getting over the cultural differnces and obscure way the story is told magic factors in a great deal and sometimes it s hard to pin down what is metaphorical and what is supposed to be actual you ll probably enjoy this book In saying that I do not mean to scare away readers nor to cite the cultural and historical differences as a problem or marker of something less thanor abnormal but it must be understood that due to the specifics of the ing Dynasty plus various editions of the novel and additions by various authors and editors the book s study has become so complex and nuanced that there is even a name for the academic field of investigation of this one novel Redology No joke In example a work mentioned in the book Fei Yi Ji Ji Gao a work within a work has even been studied in detail and the jury of scholars is still out on the origins and authenticity of this work All that said this is a powerful sweeping epic and utterly engrossing book and it stands in my opinion as probably one of the top ten possibly even top five works of world literature ever written Why only four stars then This translation and all translations I ve read or examined appear to have their faults and be overall pretty cumbersome I realize that translators and editors of a work this complex have their tasks cut out for them and I don t want to see anything done that would mitigate the true flavor of the original yet what seems to happen is that the language winds up somewhere between a faithful replication of the Chinese and something seeming like a bad script writer trying to write dialog as people would have spoken in Bible days In places the novel even seems like a parody of itself If you thought the dialog in The Good Earth seemed fake and even comical with all the ah my pretty lotus flower platitudes this book will make you want to tear your hair out If you can get past that it s a treat Diary of an SM Romance just re read this classic of Chinese literature as it s been years since I first read it

DOWNLOAD ó 紅樓夢 Hónglóu Mèng Inhalt des Traums der roten Kammer ist die Geschichte vom Glanz und vom selbstverschul. Zhuangzi said that the desire for money is difficult to overcome but the desire for fame is difficult Well how about love Many believe that The Dream of the Red Chamber is emblematic of the climax of Chinese literature I do think it is the best Chinese novel but I wouldn t say it is the emblem because it departs greatly from the convention of Chinese literature and aims to reveal the hypocrisy of this convention which is its feigned integrity and disregard for love It is through the lens of love that Cao Xuein reveals to the readers the dilemma tragedy and general condition of human life It is hard to describe how much this book means to me It not only defines how I understand my national identity but also serves as a foundation for my cognition and interpretation of almost everything Many times when life tosses me a certain peculiarity or uneasiness I would remember and contemplate on a scene a prose a uotation or a general idea about the fate of one of the character in this book and suddenly I would feel easier and say to myself this is life The Dream of the Red Chamber isn t very popular among Western readers and most well read people on GR have never heard of this book and even those who appreciate Chinese literature ignore it probably finding it too long too difficult too boring someone even said it s unaesthetic I ve heard people comparing it to The Plum in the Golden Vase or categorizing it as a book about teenage relationships So I find it necessary to clarify that The Dream of the Red Chamber is objectively the single most important literary work in the history of Chinese literature or even one can say East Asian literature It is important to Chinese literature than Shakespeare is to English literature It is ridiculous to think that you know Chinese literatureculturephilosophy without having read this book even though I know that most people in China no longer read this Hundreds and thousands of scholars have devoted their lives to the study of every single word of this work For many admirers for Cao Xuein myself included we would be willing to sacrifice many years of our lives if we could read the original ending of this work which has been unfortunately lost I consider it beyond my ability to review this book especially in the language of English so all I can do is an advertisement This is the book to read if you want to encounter Chinese mentality at its most powerful intricate insightful and sincere form
