#1: On Joys of the Wedding Chamber. How were gender values reflected in Shen Fus account about his marriage? How would you explain the popularity of Shen Fus account today? What seemed to have fascinated todays readers?
#2: On A Daughter of Han. How was Ning Lao Tai-tais life story different/similar to the stories told in other course readings? Even though Ning Lao Tai-tai was self-conscious about her gender role, she declared if man can go (to a place) women can go to when looking for her younger daughter who had been sold by her husband. How do you explain this discrepancy?
