Description: The history of China in the nineteenth century usually features men as the dominant figures in a chronicle of warfare, rebellion, and dynastic decline.The Talented Women of the Zhang Familychallenges this model and provides a different account of this era, history as seen through the eyes of women. Basing her remarkable study on the poetry and memoirs of three generations of literary women of the Zhang family--Tang Yaoqing, her eldest daughter, and her eldest granddaughter--Susan Mann illuminates a China that has been largely invisible. Drawing on a stunning array of primary materials--published poetry, gazetteer articles, memorabilia--as well as a variety of other historical documents, Mann reconstructs these women's intimate relationships, personal aspirations, values, ideas, and political consciousness. She writes with a novelist's skill bringing these women to vivid life as they navigate such economic and political upheavals as the Opium War and the Taiping Rebellion. She asserts her role as historian in notes and chapter epilogues, probing beneath the surface of these writings, asking questions, and offering plausible answers to reveal the crucial ways elite women in the nineteenth century helped their families survive.The Talented Women of the Zhang Familytransforms our understanding of gender relations and what it meant to be an educated woman during China's transition from empire to nation. Mann's work offers an entirely new view of the history of late imperial women and vividly enriches and revises the recorded history of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century China.
