Description:

This essay will examine the poem "Selling Tattered Peonies" by Yu Xuan-ji. As will be seen, the poem does not appear different from poems written by men in terms of structure. However, the choice of language and images represent womanhood in traditional Chinese identification. Moreover, the social situation that the poem represents is particularly that of a woman. Thus, the poem "Selling Tattered Peonies" reflects a woman's point of view as defined by the society of Yu Xuan-ji's time. Unfortunately, it may also be said that it reflects a woman's point of view as defined by our modern society as well.
