Six Chapters Of A Floating Life

Chapter One: Wedded Bliss

I Was Born In 1763, under The Reign Of Chienlong, day Of The Eleventh Moon of   of On The Twenty-second. The Country Was Then In The Heyday Of Peace And, moreover, I Was In A Scholars' Family, living By The Side Of The Canglang Pavilion In Suzhou. So Altogether I May Say The Gods Have Been Unusually Kind To Me. Su Donpo Said, "Life Is Like A Spring Dream Which Vanished Without A Trace. "Life Is Like A Spring Dream Which Vanished Without A Trace.. I Should Be Ungrateful To The Gods If I Did Not Try To Put My Life Down On Record. Since The Book Of Poems Begins With A Poem On Wedded Love, I Thought I Would Begin This Book By Speaking Of My Marital Relations And Then Let Other Matters Follow. My Only Regret Is That I Was Not Properly Educated In Childhood; All I Know Is A Simple Language And I Shall Try Only To Record The Real Facts And Real Sentiments. I Hope The Reader Will Be Kind Enough Not To Scrutinize My Grammar, which Would Be Like Looking For Brilliance In A Tarnished Mirror.
