Chapter Summary

Xue Shaohui 薛紹徽, courtesy name Xiuyu 秀玉 and styled Nansi 男姒, was an outstanding poet, writer, translator, and educator of the late Qing period. During the Reform Movement of 1898 and thereafter, Xue Shaohui, Chen Shoupeng, Chen Jitong, and Jitong's wife, a well-educated French woman known by her Chinese name Lai Mayi 賴媽懿, all played extremely important roles. This chapter discusses Xue's poems in a chronological order, with each section focusing on a specific period: 1) Encountering the outside world, Xue's pre-1898 poems; 2) Participating in the 1898 reforms; 3) Portraying women in the Boxer Rebellion; and 4) Upholding the "New Administration".
