Domestic Life and Habits

Domestic Life and Habits

(p.158) 16 Domestic Life and Habits
Love-Letters and Privacy in Modern China


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Lu Xun and Xu Guangping's domestic and working life and habits. Deletions and recensions about domestic matters were mainly carried out on trivial detail and repetition, and quite a lot of detail was retained. The only other areas where there were extensive deletions were passages such as her description of his bedroom when she was still his student, and their critical remarks about their or their institutions' servants. In 1926, both describe their new accommodation in great detail. In Amoy, Canton, Shanghai, and Peking there were always servants in their employ. Problems with them were often mentioned in Lu Xun's letters from Amoy.

Keywords:   domestic life, habits, trivial details, Amoy, West Third Lane
