The letter to Ren An & Sima Qian's legacy by Stephen W Durrant( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Surely, a man has but one death. That death may be as heavy as Mount Tai or as light as a goose feather. It is how he uses that death that makes all the difference!' So wrote Sima Qian (first century BCE), author of Record of the Historian (Shiji), the first comprehensive history of China's past, in his 'Letter to Ren An.' In this, the most famous letter in Chinese history, he explains his decision to finish his life's work, the first comprehensive history of the Chinese past, which was begun by his late father, rather than to honorably commit suicide following his castration for 'deceiving the emperor.' The authenticity of the letter, which is included in Sima Qian's biography in Ban Gu's (CE 32-92) History of the Han Dynasty, has been debated for millennia. Is it a genuine piece of writing by Sima Qian addressed to a fellow sufferer who was himself languishing in prison and would die in 91 BCE? Or is it a very early work of literary impersonation whereby Ban Gu or a still earlier author sought to elucidate Sima Qian's reasoning through an epistle? Conceived as a text for Chinese history courses, this compact volume provides a full translation of the letter (along with the original Chinese text) and uses different interpretations of this key document to explore issues in textual history, epistolary culture, Han politics, and Han thought. It shows how ideas about friendship, loyalty, factionalism, and authorship encoded in the letter have far-reaching implications for the study of China"--Provided by publisher

The Grand Scribe's records by Qian Sima( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Grand Scribe's Records: Volume X, readers can follow Ssu-ma Qian's depiction of the later years of the reign of Emperor Wu of the Han (r. 140-87 BC). The volume begins with four chapters describing the Han's attempts to subdue states north, east, south and west of the empire. The subsequent long biography of Ssu-ma Hsiang-ju (179-117) presents one of the era's major literary figures who came to oppose the Emperor's expensive military campaigns against these states. It is followed by an equally extended portrayal of Liu An (d. 122), King of Huai-nan, who was seen as an internal threat and forced to commit suicide. The final chapters recount narratives of the ideal officials (all predating the Han) and the Confucians the Emperor championed

Keine andere Lehre hat das chinesische Denken und die chinesische Geschichte stärker geprägt als der Konfuzianismus. Pietät ist ihm zufolge die Grundlage des Familienlebens wie des Staates; dieser beruht wiederum auf dem Leben der Familie. Die ""Fünf Beziehungen"" zwischen Fürst und Staatsdiener, Vater und Sohn, Mann und Frau, älterem und jüngerem Bruder, Freund und Freund werden bestimmt durch die Tugenden der Menschenliebe, der Gerechtigkeit und Ehrerbietung. Diese äußert sich in der Achtung des Ererbten, der Riten, der Musik und geht in der Verehrung der Ahnen über den Tod hinaus. Hans van E
