9780226848709: Necklace and Calabash: A Chinese Detective Story (Judge Dee Mysteries)

Brought back into print in the 1990s to wide acclaim, re-designed new editions of Robert van Gulik's Judge Dee Mysteries are now available.

Written by a Dutch diplomat and scholar during the 1950s and 1960s, these lively and historically accurate mysteries have entertained a devoted following for decades. Set during the T'ang dynasty, they feature Judge Dee, a brilliant and cultured Confucian magistrate disdainful of personal luxury and corruption, who cleverly selects allies to help him navigate the royal courts, politics, and ethnic tensions in imperial China.  Robert van Gulik modeled Judge Dee on a magistrate of that name who lived in the seventh century, and he drew on stories and literary conventions of Chinese mystery writing dating back to the Sung dynasty to construct his ingenious plots.

Necklace and Calabash finds Judge Dee returning to his district of Poo-yang, where the peaceful town of Riverton promises a few days' fishing and relaxation. Yet a chance meeting with a Taoist recluse, a gruesome body fished out of the river, strange guests at the Kingfisher Inn, and a princess in distress thrust the judge into one of the most intricate and baffling mysteries of his career.

An expert on the art and erotica as well as the literature, religion, and politics of China, van Gulik also provides charming illustrations to accompany his engaging and entertaining mysteries.

Descripción University Of Chicago Press, U.S.A., 1992. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: New. No Jacket. The Judge Dee stories are written by Dutch diplomat and China scholar, Robert van Gulik (1910-1967). Judge Dee (Judge Di) is based on the historical magistrate and statesman Ti Jen-chieh, (630-700) of the T'ang Dynasty (618-907). While he worked as a diplomat in Japan and China before and during World War II, van Gulik became interested in the long tradition of Chinese detective and crime literature, a literature of which most Westerners were almost completely unaware. After the war, van Gulik tried to inspire Chinese and Japanese writers to begin writing traditional stories rather than merely imitating or translating Western detective stories. In 1949 he translated and published one of the old stories, the Celebrated Cases of Judge Dee ¿an 18th-century Chinese detective novel by an anonymous author. This did not have the desired result so he wrote The Chinese Maze Murders which was published in Japanese in 1951 and in Chinese in 1953. This success was followed by The Chinese Bell Murders and The Chinese Lake Murders and many more. Judge Dee began his career as a District Magistrate, the all-powerful judge, police chief, and administrator in, usually, a city and the surrounding countryside. While his character was based on a real person, Van Gulik's stories were completely fictional regarding his early life, his cases, official postings, family, etc. Since much more was known about daily life of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) than about the T'ang, van Gulik used clothing, customs, and culture from the Ming in describing events in the T'ang Dynasty, seven hundred years earlier. The Judge Dee stories usually deal with three cases simultaneously (they may or many not be connected) and often include a supernatural element. The books describe Chinese culture and life-style of the period well, as van Gulik was meticulous in his research. They draw on van Gulik's vast knowledge of Chinese life, history, literature, and jurisprudence and his research into Chinese pornography. The stories include drawings by van Gulik and often have a map of the city or region in which the story takes place. When van Gulik began to illustrate his own stories they usually included a least one nude. Judge Dee is usually accompanied and assisted by an old family retainer, later his clerk Sergeant Hoong. When the judge encounters two highwaymen, "men of the greenwood", Ma Joong and Chiao Tai, they are so impressed with his character that they give up their criminal careers and become his faithful assistants. Later they are joined by Tao Gan, a former confidence man and swindler. Nº de ref. de la librería 000631
