Raise The Red Lantern has three stories, each twice as depressing and twisted as the last. Sad stories of lust, greed, treachery, sex, drugs, death and so much more. These three novellas, general enough for an American to grasp yet specific to the Chinese milieu, probe the underside of human nature. With emphasis on class, the people's revolution, and the organic nature of life, the author confronts the bestial facets of living in the underclass.

Raise the red lantern. From a member of China's New Wave, three novellas of a disturbing intensity make their US debut-including & the Red Lantern,'' the basis of an acclaimed 1991 film. Set in provincial China of the 1930's, all three stories evoke a place where a concubine might have attended college and a landlord's son might have learned to play tennis at his boarding school-but where the harsh old ways still prevail. Women, even the most spirited, are broken by men's brutality and by other women's spite.

The brutal realities of the dark places Su Tong depicts in this collection of novellas set in 1930s provincial China - worlds of prostitution, poverty, and drug addiction - belie his prose of stunning and simplebeauty.

The title novella, "Raise the Red Lantern," which became a critically acclaimed film, tells the story of Lotus, a young woman whose father's suicide forces her to become the concubine of a wealthy merchant. Crushed by loneliness, despair, and cruel treatment, Lotus finds her descent into insanity both a weapon and a refuge.

  • I stumbled over this movie on late night tv and it's the only movie I've ever watched with captions. I had to get the novella, and was happily surprised to get two others as well. Excellent story.

  • I read the first novella, "Wives and Concubines," in order to analyze the film. The story had no red lanterns, and the film made Lotus's servant Yan'er a much more important character. Lotus in the story has a better relationship with "The Master," who has a sense of humor lacking in the faceless Master in the film. There are other differences. I like the visual beauty of the film very much, and like the novella for a rather different version of the story.

  • Read the first story and found the rest unreadable boring....

  • I LOVE THIS BOOK AND MOVIE

  • I love the way this was written. It gives one a feeling of what it was like in China back then. It feels historical. Very good book. Thank you

  • This is a great book that consists of three novellas, each one interesting and well-written.

  • I really only liked one story in the book - the other 2 were tedious and uninteresting so I did not finish them
