Get to Know Us. Main plot : Rise and fall of the Jia family, which lives in two major adjoining compounds Rong-guo, headed by Grandmother Jia; Ning-guo, headed by Jia Jing. Focus on Bao-yu--his upbringing and interaction with various characters mainly women--see Vol. Basic story line concerns conflict between Bao-yu and his family over his laziness and failure to study well for the examinations, etc. Also a complex love story, or series of stories; Bao-yu believes he will marry Dai-yu, but his family instead arranges a marriage with the more robust Bao-chai; Bao-yu is surprised on his wedding day; Dai-yu is grief-striken and dies on the same day; a series of family tragedies follow, but Bao-yu eventually passes the exams, Bao-chai bears him a son to carry on the line, and the Jia family fortunes, which have fallen, rise again; but Bao-yu then renounces the world to go off and become a monk symbolizing individual liberation.
Several traditional interpretations: love story, political satire, autobiography; work in praise of women "Red Chamber" refers to the women's quarters of a traditional family compound --all are essentially correct. Western scholarship see below : Growing appreciation for the novel and its cultural significance; Dream may be viewed as a kind of "total vision" of Chinese culture--"Prospect Garden" is a sort of cultural metaphor.
The novel itself is a reflection of Chinese aesthetics and world view; the culmination of China's rich literary tradition; includes examples of every major type of Chinese literature, including several kinds of poetry. General cultural value: Sheds light on virtually every aspect of elite and much popular culture, from family life, social roles and values to religious practices and attitudes, amusements, food, medicine, clothing and architecture. Bibliography Not all call numbers are listed [I got lazy]; the Fondren Library has virtually all of these works in the call number range indicated.
