In this talk, Lu will be discussing the aesthetics of Zhang Dai (1597-1689)’s essay collection Taoan mengyi (Dream Recollections of Taoan). She argues that the essays’ famous attention to sensory perception and memory can also be understand as a set of social positions, grounded in the writer’s position as master.
