ABSTRACT

「Dong Po Mong」 is drama of Yuan dynasty. The story is about of Su Dongpo. He lived in Song dynasty. Main story of 「Dong Po Mong」 is Su Dongpo how to change his religion. He suffered many experience and trial. Since then he believed in Buddism. The structure of 「Dong Po Mong」 is similar to rite of passage. Rite of passage is a celebration of the passage which occurs when an individual leaves one group to enter another. It involves a significant change of status in society. In cultural anthropology the term is the Anglicisation of rite de passage, a French term innovated by the ethnographer Arnold van Gennep in his work Les rites de passage, ‘The Rites of Passage.’ The term is now fully adopted into anthropology as well as into the literature and popular cultures of many modern languages.
