Dream of the Red Chamber

One of the four famous books of China, mainly created by Cao Xueqin in the Qing Dynasty. One of Zhang Ailing’s three hates is that the red building is not finished. Although the manuscripts of the Dream of Red Mansions have all been lost, the first 80 of the current versions are basically made by Cao Xueqin. However, it was copied and passed down by everyone. The last 40 times are mainly continuation by others, and Cao Xueqin's original work is not a level, so it will not be discussed when sharing.
This time I mainly talked about several interesting characters in the first 80 times.
What is the emotional dispute between the three protagonists? Baodi really likes Baoyu? Is Saitama a young lady who loves to lose her temper and makes a little temper?
In addition, several characters analyzed with you: Xue Yu Jia Jia Jia Wei Liu Wei
The reason is that these people are not only interesting, but often bring their own food when they appear. It’s awesome!

About the Author:

Cao Xueqin

Born in 1715, died in 1763. Qing Dynasty novelist, poet, painter. The Dream of Red Mansions is the family history of Cao Xueqin.
Cao Xueqin's genealogy surface is the descendant of Cao Cao of the Three Kingdoms. During the reign of Shunzhi and Kangxi in the Qing Dynasty, Cao’s family had been a prominent official at the time. Kangxi six times in the southern tour, four times are Cao's pick-up. Later, due to the huge loss of the pick-up, when Cao Zheng was in the throne, Cao’s family was investigated and gradually declined because he had not filled the deficit. Cao Xueqin witnessed the whole process of a big family from the peak to the decline. This is the basis for his creation of the Dream of Red Mansions.
