Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a miseen-scene that casts light on Xun Xus role in a large, extended family. The first section of the chapter sketches out early Xun origins in Yingyin, a town in Yingchuan commandery, and their actions down to about 212. The next section begins around the year 220, when some Xuns moved to Luoyang. There, a cultural shift among scholars would touch the Xuns, and friction arose in the family. The third section examines a 295 AD entombed epitaph that provides a human story about one particular Xun family who lived probably for some period in Luoyang when Xun Xu and others did. A concluding section discusses the Xun familys self-fashioning, shifts of venue, and experiments with new genres and skills in the Luoyang culture after 220 as an overall reaction to many decades of confusion.
