Ts’ai Yan: A Sentimental But Melodious Song

Suping WANG


By rewriting the story of Ts’ai Yan at the end of The Woman Warrior, Kinston diaplays to the mainstream society a unique female image that is far different from the traditional one in Chinese history. This writing is to analyse the hybridity of the figure of Ts’ai and to probe into the rationality as well as the practical significance of rewriting the story.
