ABSTRACT

Chunhuangjeon expressed life and love in a lively and moving way, It has been transformed into various forms by numerous virsions. In China, it was converted into yueju(越劇) Chunxiangzhuan in 1954. The purpose to deal with this issue is in order to examine the transformation by comparing it with other editions. Chunhuangjeon conveys a number of semantic elements, and what appears in common can be condensed into the pursuit of love and chastity, identity conflict and resolution, and government-civilian conflict and resolution. These semantics are so closely intertwined that it is impossible to define a particular scene separately, and can be properly identified in the narrative context of the work. Looking at the changing patterns of these semantics is an important indicator of the value of the edition. The purpose of this paper is to look at the transformation patterns of these semantics, to reveal what the orientation of these transformations is, and to deduce the causes of the transformation.
