Introduction

The Peony Pavilion, or The Return of the Soul at the Peony Pavilion in full written by Tang Xianzu, a famous playwright of the Ming Oynasty, is another love story that enjoys worldwide popularity after Romance of the Western Chamber. Tang Xianzu (1550--1616) was a native of Linchuan, Jiangxi. As a man of integrity, he resolutely refused to become an appendage to the bigwigs and resigned from office and returned home at the age of forty*nine in 1598. In the fall of the same year he wrote The Peony Pavilion.
The Peony Pavilion describes a young girl by the name of Du Liniang who starts to have a longing for love at the arousal of the love song from The Book of Songs, and sees Liu Mengmei in her dream after visiting a garden in spring and since then becomes lovesick and dies of lovesickness.
Three years later, while Liu Mengmei is passing by Du Liniang's tomb on his way to Lin'an to sit for the government examination, the soul of Du Liniang shows up and the two have a secret rendezvous. With the heIp of Liu Mengmei, Du Liniang revives from death and they get married without permission. After Du Liniang comes back to life, her father Du Bao sees his daughter as an evil spirit and accuses Liu Mengmei of robbing his daughter's tomb. Du Liniang goes to the imperial court to make an appeal. Liu Mengmei succeeds in the government examination. At the imperial decree, Du Bao gives approval to his daughter's marriage and the whole family gets reunited.
Tang Xianzu believes pure-hearted love can go beyond life and death. The love story of Du Liniang and Liu Mengmei is no longer limited to the narrow meaning of fighting against the dictates of parents and words of matchmakers. Instead the story shows love can be so powerful that it can conquer all and go beyond life and death. The author considers the pursuit of free love as "emotion" and the feudal code of ethics as "principle".
The Peony Pavilion reveals the conflict between "emotion" and "principle" and the final victory of
"emotion" over "principle". Du Liniang, the heroine of the story, is the embodiment of true love and sincere emotion. She is a young girl who loves life. pursues freedom, and has the courage to revolt against conventions. The most significant trait that features her character is the firmness and obsession she evolves in the course of her seeking true love. She dies of love and gets reborn because of love. She never pulls back and continues to fight until she gets ultimate victory regardless of the eeriness and terror of the nether world, the peremptoriness and indifference of her father or the forbidding nature of the imperial court. This has been a great leap forward in comparison with Cui Yingying from Romance of the Western Chamber who has to count on Hongniang's assistance at many points.
The other characters in the play also have clear-cut personalities. The hero Liu Mengmei is both enthusiastic about pursuing an official position and faithful to love which is shown in that he is whole-headedly devoted to Du Liniang. The peremptoriness and obstinacy of Du Bao, the pedantry of Chen Zui]iang, and the mischievousness of Chunxiang are also vividly portrayed.
The artistic merit of The Peony Pavillon is outstanding too. First, this play is permeated with a strong tint of romanticism. Tang Xianzu employs romantic techniques in his writing, By creating a series of intense fantastic plots like falling in love in a dream, returning to life after death, getting married to a ghost and etc., he warmly eulogizes the young couple's strong desire for pursuing free love and an ideal world. Secondly, in characterization, he attaches a lot more importance to revealing what’s inside his characters’ hearts and exploring the subtle and elaborate sentiments of the characters so as to create characters through describing their mental activities.

内容简介

《牡丹亭》全名《牡丹亭还魂记》,是继《西厢记》之后又一部享誉天下的爱情剧,作者是明代著名戏剧家汤显祖。汤显祖(1550-1616),江西临川人。他一生正直,不肯依附权贵,四十九岁那年弃官回家,并在当年(1598)秋天写成《牡丹亭》。
《牡丹亭》描写青年女子杜丽娘受《诗经》中情歌的启发,萌动春心,在游园赏春后梦见书生柳梦梅,从此相思成疾,伤情而死。三年后,柳梦梅去临安赴试,经过丽娘墓地,丽娘幽魂出现,二人相会,丽娘在柳梦梅的帮助下,还魂再生,私自结合。丽娘复活后,父亲杜宝视女儿为妖孽,诬陷柳梦梅盗掘女儿坟墓。丽娘上朝申诉,柳梦梅金榜题名,皇帝做主,杜宝才承认了女儿的婚姻,全家团圆。
汤显祖认为:真诚的爱情是可以超越生死的。杜丽娘与柳梦梅的爱情,不再停留在反对父母之命、媒妁之言这一狭隘含义之内,而是具有战胜一切阻隔,超越生死的巨大力量。作者将追求自由爱情理解为“情”,将封建礼教理解为“理”,《牡丹亭》展现出“情”与“理”的冲突,以及“情”对“理”的最终胜利。
剧中的女主角杜丽娘是真情、至情的化身,她是一个热爱生活、追求自由、勇于反抗的青春少女,她性格中最大的特点是在追求爱情过程中表现出来的坚定执著。她为情而死,为情而生,无论是地府的阴森恐怖,父亲的专横冷漠,还是金銮殿的森严,都无法使她退缩,直至她取得最后的胜利。
