Wang, "Confrontation and compromise: The worlds of the supernatural and humans in Pu Song-Ling's 'Liaozhai Zhiyi,' " 2000
Xiao Wang, M.A.
In Pu Song-ling's Liaozhai Zhiyi, the world of the supernatural and the world of humans stand confronted with each other, but get compromised in the end through the realization of an ideal realm. In this thesis, it is argued that confrontation and compromise between these two worlds suggest the possibility of a humane society featured by equality between beings. There are always confrontations between the two worlds, but that doesn't mean that the boundary between the two worlds cannot be crossed over. The communication of the two worlds is a process of confrontation, negotiation and establishment of the highest order of harmony. Humanity achieves its full power in Liaozhai Zhiyi stories.
