Description

Words Luo Guanzhong's fictionalized account of the Beizhou rebellion, led by Wang Ze. This forbidden classic, unavailable in China for decades, was "completed" by Feng Menglong, who added other details such as how the evil sorcerers obtained their powers through the efforts of a Fox Spirit and her two children, along with various satires of Ming corruption. Translated by Nathan Sturman.

The main story is the way people let evil forces control their lives, the classic pact with the devil to be able to do some great work. And of the grip of violent curiosity about heresy, curiositas as medieval Europe knew it, a punishable offense. That has been studied extensively by my former teacher at the University of Pennsylvania, Ed Peters. In this case, the devil is the Queen of Hell, the ghost of the Empress Wu Zetian of the Restored Zhou, as she called her twenty-year period of rule in the early Tang; the story is a sort of Chinese Faust or Nosferatu. Throughout is a certain idea of Confucian high legitimacy, the notion of legitimate leadership and princliness versus upitty cleverness, true fame versus notoriety. The high Chinese state culture and Emperor as Son of Heaven is glorified quite directly. And it is on another level entertainment and education, rich in Chinese myth and legend. And it is full of admiration for the great poets and high culture of the Tang. Also notable in the somewhat bloody Ping Yao Zhuan is Feng's appreciation of the impact of death upon the survivors of the deceased. This is not a nihilistic "cut 'em up" like some other Chinese novels but a fully developed novel, rich in spiritual and psychological insight. Many of the deaths in the work are followed with discussions of funeral arrangements and the effects upon the living, including their tears and ways of coping with the finality of the loss; even the bodies of villains need to be disposed of before the story can move on. Perhaps Hollywood can learn something from this.
