Introduction

The Palace of Eternal Youth is one of the most famous classical Chinese plays. It was written by Hong Sheng (1645- 1704), a famous dramatist of the Qing Dynasty. Hong Sheng was born into an official's family in Zhejiang and received a good education. At twenty-five, he left his native place for Beijing where he lived for nearly twenty years henceforth. While he was in Beijing, he spent more than ten years to write The Palace of Eternal Youth.
The Palace of Eternal Youth tells about the love story of Li Longji, Emperor Ming of the Tang Dynasty (618-907), and his concubine Yang Yuhuan (also known as Yang Taizhen), The story of Emperor Ming of the Tang Dynasty and Yang Yuhuan had begun to spread among the people as far back as the Tang Dynasty. Based on their story, some men of letters of the Tang Dynasty wrote some poems and novels, among which the narrative poem "A Song of Everlasting Regret" by Bai Juyi and the novel Everlasting Sorrow by Chen Hong are the most distinguished.
The Palace of Eternal Youth extols a faithful death-and-life love, a love that is ideal and eternal. Both the man and the woman love each other true and deep. Yang Yuhuan is unusually faithful to love. Though he has many concubines, the one the Tang emperor loves best is Yang Yuhuan to
whom he is basically faithful. After Yang Yuhuan dies, his love for her grows so deep that he is bent on dying for her. Eventually the heaven is moved by his true love of Yang Yuhaun and gives them permission to meet each other and get reunited in heaven. Though one of the couple in love
dies, their affection for each other never dies and thereby prolongs their love. This arrangement of the plot is drawn from The Peony Pavillon. For this reason, some people later looked upon The Palace of Eternal Youth as a new version of The Peony Pavillon, however, the former is more exciting and bustling.
However, the content of thought conveyed in The Palace of Eternal Youth is more complicated. On the one hand, the author highly commended faithful, life-and-death love, on the other hand, he is also critical of the pleasure-seeking life that the Tang emperor and Lady Yang lead which finally
brings to the ruin of the empire. In addition, the author denounces the misdeeds and offences An Lushan and Yang Guozhong commit against the state for personal gains and speaks highly of Guo Ziyi and Lei Haiqing who dedicate themselves to the service of the empire. Apart from the love
between Li Longji and Yang Yuhuan, the feelings the author delves upon in this play also include the ministers' loyalty to their sovereign and the dutiful sons' submissiveness and obedience to their parents. In reflecting on the causes for the Tang Dynasty’s going from prosperity to decline, the author means to “set a warning for posterity”.



内容简介

本书是一部写得很出色的传奇戏曲。作者在广阔的社会、政治背景中来表现李隆基和杨玉环的爱情悲剧,对历史素材加以精心选择和剪裁,进行了艺术的概括、集中和虚构,使事件和人物的描写基本符合历史真实,而且全剧写得有声有色,许多场面强烈感人,把历史剧的创作提高到一个新的水平。作者将李、杨爱情和安史之乱两条情节线索互相纠结、发展,组织得有条不紊,在布局和结构上也作了巧妙的安排,随处可见匠心。他更发展了著名的《琵琶记》中运用的对比的手法,使宫廷内外、朝野上下、天上人间交相辉映,一齐展现在观众和读者的眼前。而皇室的享乐和人民的受难,权奸的争权夺利和有识之士的忧国忧世,上层官僚的卑劣灵魂和下层人民的崇高品质,形成强烈的对照,发人深思,是作者的用心所在。
