9780295988429: Heroines of Jiangyong: Chinese Narrative Ballads in Women's Script

Heroines of Jiangyong is the first English translation of a set of verse narratives recorded in the unique women's script (nushu) of rural Jiangyong County, Hunan, in southern China. This selection of Chinese folk literature provides a rare window into the everyday life of rural daughters, wives, and mothers, as they transmit valuable lessons about surviving in a patriarchal society that is often harsh and unforgiving. Featuring strong female protagonists, the ballads deal with moral issues, dangers women face outside the family home, and the difficulties of childbirth.

The women's script, which represents units of sound in the local Chinese dialect, was discovered by scholars in the late twentieth century, creating a stir in China and abroad. This volume offers a full translation of all the longer ballads in women's script, providing an exceptional opportunity to observe which specific narratives appealed to rural women in traditional China. The translations are preceded by a brief introduction to women's script and its scholarship, and a discussion of each of the twelve selections.

From the Publisher:

"The stories and songs translated here are gems of folk literatu. For the first time, Western readers will be able to appreciate some of the most popular stories composed in women's script and survey the kind of stories and songs enjoyed by these village women." - Anne McLaren, University of Melbourne

"Contributes to the study of Chinese literature, history, and society by filling the void of research on rural women in imperial China - a field grossly underexplored due to the lack of historical documentation." - Fei-wen Liu, Institute of Ethnology, Academia Sinica, Taipei

About the Author:

Wilt L. Idema is professor of Chinese literature at Harvard University. He is the translator of Meng Jiangnu Brings Down the Great Wall: Ten Versions of a Chinese Legend and the author (with Beata Grant) of The Red Brush: Writing Women of Imperial China.

Descrizione libro University of Washington Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Heroines of Jiangyong: Chinese Narrative Ballads in Women's Script, Wilt Idema, "Heroines of Jiangyong" is the first English translation of a set of verse narratives recorded in the unique women's script (nushu) of rural Jiangyong County, Hunan, in southern China. This selection of Chinese folk literature provides a rare window into the everyday life of rural daughters, wives, and mothers, as they transmit valuable lessons about surviving in a patriarchal society that is often harsh and unforgiving. Among samples of Chinese women's literature, writings in women's script are rare in their presentation of peasant women speaking their own mind, in their own words, unmediated by modern intellectuals, whether native Party cadres or foreign anthropologists.This women's script, in which each transcribed sign stands for a distinctive unit of sound in the local Chinese dialect, was discovered by scholars in the late twentieth century and its discovery created quite a stir in China and abroad. Only a handful of renditions have so far been published in Western languages. This volume offers a full translation of all the longer ballads in women's script, providing an exceptional opportunity for us to observe which specific narratives appealed to rural women in traditional China. All feature a strong female protagonist and deal with moral issues of grave concern to women: the importance of diligence and thrift; fidelity to one's husband in poverty and during his absence, and chase loyalty to him after his death; the dangers women face outside of the family home; and, the difficulties of childbirth.These translations are based on editions of nushu texts by contemporary Chinese scholars, who have transcribed the ballads in standard Chinese characters. The translations are preceded by a brief introduction to women's script and its scholarship, and a discussion of each of the twelve selections. Wilt L. Idema is professor of Chinese literature at Harvard University. He is the translator of "Meng Jiangnu Brings Down the Great Wall: Ten Versions of a Chinese Legend" and the author (with Beata Grant) of "The Red Brush: Writing Women of Imperial China".
