    description: This drama is by <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">xu</u> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">wei</u> (1521–93), a literary writer, painter-calligrapher, and playwright. A native of Shanyin, Zhejiang, <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">xu</u> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">wei</u> used various pseudonyms, among them Qingteng Jushi (Resident of the Green Vine House). Despite his talents and early achievements in painting, poetry, and essay writing, he failed in eight attempts to pass the civil examinations and never achieved a <em>jin shi</em> degree. He served under General Hu Zongxian, the supreme commander of the Jiangsu–Zhejiang–Fujian coastal defense against the Japanese pirates, but lost his post after the general was arrested and removed from his position. <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">xu</u> became mentally distraught and attempted to commit suicide many times. He went insane, killed his wife, and was imprisoned. After his release, he remained impoverished and depressed until his death. His painting, revolutionary for its time with an expressive style and unrestrained broad brushstrokes, influenced countless painters of later generations. He also left behind a number of excellent dramas. This work is a composite poetic drama formed from his four plays: <em>Kuang gu shi Yuyang san long </em>(The history of the mad drummer of Yuyang), <em>Yu chan shi Cuixiang yi meng </em>(A zen master’s dream of the land of green jade), <em>Ci Mulan ti fu cong jun</em> (The heroine Mulan goes to war in her father’s place), and <em>Nü zhuang yuan ci huang de feng</em> (The female top graduate gives up a phoenix-hen and obtains a phoenix-rooster). <em>Si sheng yuan </em>(The four cries of the gibbon),<em> </em>probably was derived from a folk ballad in <em>Badong Sanxia</em> (The Three Gorges in Badong), which describes the three cries of the monkey that reduced people to tears. The story, taken from chapter 23 of <em>San guo yan yi</em> (Romance of the Three Kingdoms), tells of Mi Heng (173–98), a talented scholar, who has served his term in the nether world after his death and is about to ascend to the heavens to assume a new position. Before he does so, he is asked by a judge to reenact his encounter with Cao Cao (155–220), chancellor of the Eastern Han dynasty and later head of the state of <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">wei</u>, who is also in the nether world. Mi Heng then tells how he was unwilling to serve Cao and behaved disrespectfully toward him, so that Cao made him a drum master at the imperial court in an attempt to humiliate him. Dressed in shabby clothes, Mi stripped naked, and played the tune of a poignant song on the drum, bringing tears to the guests’ eyes. Mi reenacts this scene and reviles Cao, listing all Cao’s treacheries. Preceding each scene of the play is a woodblock illustration with an inscription. Mi Heng is depicted naked while beating the drum. Cao Cao is shown in the upper portion of the picture, observing from his high position, with a ghostly guard on each side. The characters are delicately depicted in the illustrations. <br>Chinese classics; Chinese drama

    description: <div class="description"> <p>Woodcut illustrating the 17th century textXu Ping waike zhengzong(Orthodox Manual of External Medicine with Commentary by <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">xu</u> Dachun), from an edition published in 1860 (10th year of the Xianfeng reign period of the Qing dynasty). Lotus seed abscess (lianzi fa ju) refers to a type of abscess shaped like a lotus seed, with a prominent head, which is found on the shoulders or back. If the lesions are raised, red and inflamed and suppurating, the prognosis is favourable; if, however, they are depressed or concave, meaning that this is a Yin condition, the prognosis is unfavourable. The renowned Qing physician <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">xu</u> Dachun writes in his commentary that, all toxic lesions being 'many-headed' (duotou), the preferred method of treatment is that of 'encircling medication' (weiyao), whereby the medication is applied all around the perimeter of the lesion, omitting the head. This is an external treatment. </p> <p>Wellcome Images<br> Keywords: Abscess; Medicine, Chinese Traditional; Ulcer</p> </div>
