|Other Titles:||On the Narrative Cultural Transition of “Portraits of a Hundred Beauties” During the Late Qing Dynasty and the Early Republic of China Period|
Department of Chinese, NTNU
Focusing on the pictorial journalism, newspapers, and graphic books, this paper intends to sort out the narrative convention of “Portraits of a Hundred Beauties” originated from Ming and Qing dynasties in order to explore the transitional process of dimensions of thinking revealed in various “Portraits of a Hundred Beauties” narrative texts unique to the Shanghai literary scene during the late Qing Dynasty and the establishing of the early Republic of China. How did “Portraits of a Hundred Beauties” affect and create the norm of the pictorial narrative for the early modern literature? Did it whittle down the literary creativity with prominent visual elements? Or quite the contrary, did it bear and integrate even richer meanings and images within this format and eventually transmitting this vigor into a more dynamic cultural creativity? Through exploration, this paper shall make manifest the process of how modernist literati’s cultural “confidentialness” discourse and the conventional erotic literature heritage—which considered as non-mainstream—germinated, evolved and transformed in the Shanghai literary scene during the late Qing Dynasty and the early Republic period.
