Class Details

The eighteenth-century novel Dream of the Red Chamber, also known as Story of the Stone, is widely regarded as China’s greatest novel due to the intricacy of its narrative and the sophistication with which it deals with themes as varied as romance, enlightenment, sexuality and gender identity, and the construction of public and private spaces. We will read the novel through a variety of critical approaches, addressing it both as a work of literature and as a cultural phenomenon.
