English Works by LinYutang


As one Chinese name per person is more than enough for the Western reader to follow, I shall always call the father Su Sbiin, the elder son Su Tungpo, and the younger son Su Tseyu, following the prevailing Chinese practice. The confusion arising from so many names adopted by one scholar takes up a great deal of the time of a student doing research in Chinese history. In Su Tungpo'stime at least eight persons had the same name, Mengteh, which meant that the person's mother, before she conceived, had dreamed that she had a bay.

When Tungpo was sixteen, there was an episode which put a heavy strain on the relationship between the father's and the mother's family, and which reveals something of the father's character. As often happens in Chinese families, the father has married Su Tungpo's elder sister to a first cousin in the mother's family. We cannot know details at this late date, but we know that the young bride was unhappy in the Cheng family. Perhaps she was persecuted by her husband's relations. Anyway, she soon died and under circumstances that stirred up Su Shiin's indignation. It seems the girl's father-in-law was a thorough scoundrel. Su Shiin wrote a poem couched in bitter words and blaming himself for his daughter's death. He then did an unusual thing. He compiled a family genealogy, had it inscribed in stone, and erected a pavilion over it. To celebrate the occasion, he gathered the entire Su clan, before whom he intended to read a public denunciation of his wife's family. After the members of the clan had poured wine offerings to the dead ancestors, Su said to the clansmen that a "certain" person in the village, meaning his wife's brother, represented a powerful family; that he had brought moral chaos into the village; that he had driven out the orphan child of his own brother and monopolized the family property; that he had placed his concubine above his wife and indulged in licentious pleasures.
