孔尚任 Kong Shangren

孔尚任 Kong Shangren

Kong Shangren (Chinese: 孔尚任; pinyin: Kǒng Shàngrèn; Wade–Giles: K'ung Shang-jen; 1648 - 1718) was a Qing Dynasty dramatist and poet best known for his chuanqi play The Peach Blossom Fan (桃花扇 Pinyin: Tao Hua Shan)[1] about the last days of the Ming dynasty.

Born in Qufu, Kong was a 64th-generation descendant of Confucius.[3] He guided the Kangxi Emperor when he visited Qufu.

The Peach Blossom Fan tells the story of the love story between the scholar Hou Fangyu and the courtesan Li Xiangjun, against the dramatic backdrop of the short history of the Southern Ming. It remains a favourite of the Kun opera (kunqu) stage.

Kong Shangren is known as the author of a curious poem dedicated to the eyeglasses, a Western innovation brought to Macau by the Portuguese.[4]

北固山看大江 The Grand River Viewed from the Northern Mountain

Author: -- 孔尚任 Kong Shangren
孤城铁瓮四山围,
The lonely iron-clad town's girt by mountains high;
绝顶高秋坐落晖。
Viewing autumn sunset, I sit on mountain crest.
眼见长江趋大海,
So fast the endless River's eastwards running by;
青天却似向西飞。
It seems the azure sky were flying to the west.
