Product Description:

Lin Yutang (October 10, 1895 – March 26, 1976) was a Chinese writer and inventor.


His informal but polished style in both Chinese and English made him one of the most influential writers of his generation, and his compilations and translations of classic Chinese texts into English were bestsellers in the West.

The Pastor was not a follower of convention,SO the boys did not wear queues.Yutang was a little guy,deeply tanned,with a prominent forehead'a pair of sparkling eyes,and a narrow chin.Six miles later, when the skiff came to Xiaoxi.the boys changed to a five.sail junk,and sailed toward Zhangzhou on West River.There were paddy fields and farmhouses on either side of the river.and tall mountains stood behind them,clad in grey-purplish hues.Yutang thought it inexpressibly beautiful.After a day's journey,the junk was tied up against the bank under some bamboo trees.Yutang was told to lie down,cover himself with a blanket and go to sleep. But sleep was the last thing on the boy's mind.The boatman sitting at the iunk,s stern was sucking at his pipe,and between gulps of bitter tea,telling stories about the Empress Dowager Cixi,who ruled the court today,having put the Emperor Guangxu under house arrest for supporting the reformers at the palace.Another junk was tied up on the opposite bank,brightly lit by lanterns.A soft breeze wafted sounds of merrymaking and music from a lute across the water.

Preface:

One morning in 1905.or the 3Ith year of the reign of Emperor Guangxu of Qing Dynasty, two brothers set out by boat from their hometown Boa-ah,amountain hamlet in Fujian Province on the southern coast of China,for the Dort city of Xiamen,some sixty miles away.The boys were full of excitement and chatted especi~ly the younger one.Yutang was ten years old,and today,hewas taking leave of his hometown and going with his brother to study in Xiamen·Thev were sons of Pastor Lin Zhicheng,who was born in the poor village of Wulisha.Pastor Lin was sending his sons to free missionary schools in Xiamen.

The Pastor was not a follower of convention, So the boys did not wear queues.Yutang was a little guy,deeply tanned,with a prominent forehead'a pair of sparkling eyes,and a narrow chin.Six miles later, when the skiff camet0 Xiaoxi.the boys changed tO a five.sail junk,and sailed toward Zhangzhou on West River.There were paddy fields and farmhouses on either side ofthe river.and tall mountains stood behind them,clad in grey-purplish hues.Yutang thought it inexpressibly beautiful.After a day's journey,the junk was tied up against the bank under some bamboo trees.Yutang was told tO lie down,cover himself with a blanket and go tO sleep. But sleep was the last thing on the boy's mind.The boatman sitting at the iunk,s stern was sucking at his pipe,and between gulps of bitter tea,telling stories about the Empress Dowager Cixi,who ruled the court today,having put the Emperor Guangxu under house arrest for supporting the reformers at the palace.Another junk was tied up on the opposite bank,brightly lit by lanterns.A soft breeze wafted sounds of merrymaking and music from a lute across the water.

Digest:

Astute,with an intuitive political skill,she planned her moves,marked her victims and bided her time.This much must be said for her:she knew her men.When her new Jou Dynasty was established,all her executioners were killed within a year after having served their purpose during the terror;she remembered all the good men she had banished,and recalled them to power.She was able to rule the country in peace for fifteen years.There were no longer frame-ups;one heard no more of alarms of conspiracies and rebellions.Toward the end of her reign,law and justice recovered their ancient dignity.Ironically,it was in this very period of outspoken ministers and honest,courageous judges that the seeds of her ruin were sown. How does one write of one's grandmother if she was a whore and amurderess?This question came up the other day when my Cousin Chiu,Duke of Ying,and I had a hunting dinner at the Tsuiwei Palace and I told him that1 was starting these memoirs.Chiu is the son of Uncle Prince Suchiay;m yfather was Prince Shien,at one time Co-regent.Both of US are among the for tunate Survivors of Grand mother’S bloodbaths.He lost his father as I lost mine in the same wave of persecution.He is a good man and has helped many of the orphans of the Royal House.Many of the princes and dukes today owe him his help.He,too,was left an orphan and knew fear, hunger and the utter loneliness of a child wandering in the jungles of subtropical Hainan in the South China Sea,feeling like a convict’s son,with a taint on his name.His mother and nine of his brothers were murdered on the same day, while he and two of his youngest brothers were exiled.He and I often sit over a cup of wine and exchange notes about the person responsible for it all,our grandmother.He is as doggedly proud of his father as I arn of mine.Both of them were real scholars.What difference does it make?His father was hanged and my father was forced to hang himself.But he and I often enjoy these talks,like
