ABSTRACT

《Lienǚ-zhuan(列女傳)》 is representative literary works of Han dynasty(漢) which claims to support Confucian ideas. Liuxiang(劉向) created《Lienǚ-zhuan(列女傳)》 to admonish Cheng-di(成帝) who gave his heart to Zhao-feiyan(趙飛燕) and spoiled the political affairs. The contents were based on feudalism of Confucian ideas, so very instructive. 《Shin-shuo Hsin-yu(世說新語)》is the representative literary works of gathering anecdotages about famous people who lived in Wei-Chin Nan-Bei dynasty(魏晉南北朝). Wei-Chin Nan-Bei dynasty(魏晉南北朝) is a political terrorism period, but in the literaryㆍideologyㆍphilosophy field that era can be called as a period of social revolution which created new social system and advanced culture so on. Through both literary works we can find various tendency of the women who had lived in those period, especially the women named femme fatale. This manuscript focuses on femme fatale of both period, and considered how the different ideologies influence the lives of those women. This manuscript would attempt to reinterpret the positive and aggressive tendency of the women underestimated as femme fatale simply because they went up against the Confucian rules.
