Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses Yulianhuan 玉連環 (Linked Rings of Jade), a tanci text by Zhu Suxian 朱素仙, the only woman author of tanci who did not maintain that she was a well-educated lady of the genteel class. The section on Linked Rings of Jade in Idema and Grant's The Red Brush, though short in length, is the first serious introduction to and analysis of this plucking rhymes text. As Idema and Grant provide a synopsis of the plot, the chapter goes straight into an investigation of one particular aspect of this text, namely its portrayal of extreme female figures.
