文摘
As one Chinese name per person is more than enough for the Westernreader 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. Theconfusion arising from so many names adopted by one scholar takes up a greatdeal 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 theperson's mother, before she conceived, had dreamed that she had a bay.
When Tungpo was sixteen, there was an episode which put a heavy strainon the relationship between the father's and the mother's family, and whichreveals something of the father's character. As often happens in Chinesefamilies, the father has married Su Tungpo's elder sister to a first cousin in themother's family. We cannot know details at this late date, but we know that theyoung bride was unhappy in the Cheng family. Perhaps she was persecuted byher husband's relations. Anyway, she soon died and under circumstances thatstirred up Su Shiin's indignation. It seems the girl's father-in-law was a thoroughscoundrel. Su Shiin wrote a poem couched in bitter words and blaming himselffor his daughter's death. He then did an unusual thing. He compiled a familygenealogy, had it inscribed in stone, and erected a pavilion over it. To celebratethe occasion, he gathered the entire Su clan, before whom he intended toread a public denunciation of his wife's family. After the members of the clanhad poured wine offerings to the dead ancestors, Su said to the clansmen thata "certain" person in the village, meaning his wife's brother, represented apowerful family; that he had brought moral chaos into the village; that he haddriven out the orphan child of his own brother and monopolized the familyproperty; that he had placed his concubine above his wife and indulged inlicentious pleasures.

内容简介
《苏东坡传》讲述了:林语堂,用美妙的英文向世界介绍中国人和中国历史文化,但是,囿于所处时代、社会环境和个人经历,他的思想认识不免带有历史的局限。20世纪30年代至50年代正是中国国内动荡变迁、破旧立新的时期,特定的创作背景无疑也给他的作品留下印痕。显而易见地,比如当时对朝代称谓与历史纪元的划定不统一(如称清朝为Manchu Dynasty);且时无汉语拼音方案,专有名词均使用威妥玛拼音音译等。此外,也能发现作者在解读文化历史和社会生活现象时的不足,如反映在民族关系的表述上,称中国的一些少数民族为foreign blood、foreign race,乃至以Chinese特指Han Chinese等。
