Notes

Abstract: This thesis studies the Liaozhai Zhiyi, a seventeenth century collection of strange tales written by Pu Songling, the self-titled Historian of the Strange. The collection was written with the perspective of the thousand-year tradition of strange writing, and specifically contains two classical genres: fictionalized tales of the marvelous and historical accounts of anomalies. While the collection highlights the strange tradition's ambiguous place between history and fiction, in many of his tales, Pu Songling explores and plays with its conventional themes, motifs, and storylines. As exemplified in �A Chivalrous Woman,� Pu's innovative writing is particularly noteworthy for how the female characters of his tales complicate the often one-dimensional image of women in traditional literature, and underscores problematic constructions of gender in the tradition of the strange.
