A saga of ruthless ambition, murder, and lust, this classic novel--admired in its own time for its literary qualities and biting indictment of the immorality and cruelty of its age--lays bare the rivalries within a wealthy family while chronicling its rise and fall. This edition features a new introduction by Robert Hegel of Washington University, and contains the complete text as translated by Clement Egerton with the assistance of Shu Qingchun, who as Lao She became one of the most prominent Chinese writers of the twentieth century.

Review:

"The greatest novel of physical love which China has produced." --Pearl S. Buck, Nobel Prize winning author

"Egerton and Qingchun (the novelist Lao She), however, present this version entirely in English. Supplemental materials such as an alphabetical list of characters and Washington University Professor Robert Hegel's new introduction detailing the novel's historical context will prove invaluable to readers." --Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Lanling Xiaoxiaosheng wrote The Golden Lotus during the early years of the Wanji era (1573-1620) of the Ming Empire. Nothing certain is known of Lanling's life. Clement Egerton was at various times a senior officer in the British army, an Anglican bishop, and a writer, editor, linguist, and prolific photographer, but he is best known for his enduring translation of The Golden Lotus. Shu Qingchun boarded with Clement Egerton and his wife when he was a lecturer in Chinese at the School of Oriental Studies in London, but he became famous as the Beijing novelist and dramatist Lao She, whose best-known work may be Rickshaw Boy. He was killed, or committed suicide, during the Cultural Revolution. Robert Hegel is the Liselotte Dieckmann Professor of Comparative Literature and a professor of Asian and Near Eastern Languages and Literatures at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
