Moment in Peking  Preface  京华烟云 序

What is a novel but "a little talk," as the name hsiaoshuo implies? So, reader, listen to this little talk awhile when you have nothing better to do.

This novel is neither an apology for contemporary Chinese life nor an expose of it, as so many recent Chinese "dark curtain" novels purport to be. It is neither a glorification of the old way of life nor a defense of the new.

It is merely a story of how men and women in the contemporary era grow up and learn to live with one another, how they love and hate and quarrel and forgive and suffer and enjoy, how certain habits of living and ways of thinking are formed, and how, above all, they adjust themselves to the circumstances in this earthly life where men strive but the gods rule.

L.Y.T



《京华烟云》序

林语堂

  "小说"者,小故事也。无事可做时,不妨坐下听听。

  本书对现代中国人的生活,既非维护其完美,亦非揭发其罪恶。因此与新近甚多"黑幕"小说迥乎不同。既非对旧式生活进赞词,亦非为新式生活做辩解。

  只是叙述当代中国男女如何成长,如何过活,如何爱,如何恨,如何争吵,如何宽恕,如何受难,如何享乐,如何养成某些生活习惯,如何形成某些思维方式,尤其是,在此谋事在人、成事在天的尘世生活里,如何适应其生活环境而已。
