Item description for Carnival in China: A Reading of the Xingshi Yinyuan Zhuan (China Studies, Vol. 1) by Daria Berg...

As if under the satirical magnifying glass, the Xingshi Yinyuan Zhuan, an anonymous traditional Chinese novel, portrays local society and provincial life in seventeenth-century China in comic and grotesque close-up. A dystopian satire, the novel provides fascinating insights into the popular culture and wild imagination of men and women in late imperial China.

Using an array of sourcesfiction, poetry, texts on medical ethics, religious thought, political and philosophical treatises, morality books and local gazetteersCarnival in China develops a style of reading that explores how seventeenth-century Chinese citizens perceived their world. Through their eyes, we gain access to their desires, dreams, fears and nightmares.
