内容简介

  《老残游记(英文版)》被鲁迅先生评为晚清四大“谴责小说”之一。全书共20回,以摇串铃的江湖医生老残在山东行医时的所见所闻为线索,描写了晚清各种社会现象,暴露了当时官场的丑闻,尤其是对于所谓的清官进行了无情的揭露。作品反映了作者同情民生疾苦的比较进步的一面,但他的基本政治观是落后的,甚至是反动的。

  《老残游记(英文版)》:
  Outside the East Gate of Dengzhou City there stands a great mountain called Penglai,hence the name of the paviilion on it:Penglai Pavilion.Spectacularly it dominates the vicinity,with its omate beams and pearly screens amidst clouds and rain.From here,a sight into the west displays a panoptic view of the city with thousands of households in the mist,and the sight into the east presents a bird's-eye view of the tumbling sea with boundless billows stretching thousands of nules away.That is the reason why the people of the city often bring with them their food and wine in the afternoon and gather here to spend the night so that they could watch the sunrise at dawn. That becomes an accustomed hobby,about which no more it needs to talk.
  Then our story begins with a traveler nicknamed Lao Can.Originally he was surnamed Tie and named Ying,but he had taken the courtesy name of the monk \"Lazy and Derelict\",whom he admired very much.The derelict monk is associated with the story of Baked Potatoes,and since all lus friends held him in respect,they simply called him by this nickname, Lao Can.He was a little more than thirty years old and was born in Southern China.He had studied poetry and history for a few years,but since he did not know how to write the eight-part essays in the imperial examination,he failed to pass it.Therefore no one would employ him as a coach. And he was too old to learn any trade as well; for he would fail too,if he should try.Actually his father used to be an official of the third or fourth rank.But he was straitlaced and did not know how to make money in office. As a result,when he retired after holding office for twenty years,he had to pawn his clothes to pay the traveling expenses on his journey home.Obviously he had left almost nothing to his son.
  Now Lao Can had no ancestral estate to inherit and no profession to follow,and he became gradually wedged in between hunger and cold.He was suffering in a desperate plight when heaven had a mercy for him.He encountered a Taoist priest with a string of bells in hand.He claimed to be taught by skilled men some divine art and thus to be able to cure all diseases.As a matter of fact,when people on the street asked him for help,they were always healed.Lao Can bowed to him and asked him to be his teacher.He learned some of his prescriptions,and then he practiced what he had leamed and wandered along rivers and lakes by shaking a string of bells with his hand almost twenty years,to make a living by curing people's diseases.
  One year,he wandered ancl came to a place in Shandong Province called Qiancheng,where there lived a rich man called Huang Ruihe.He suffered from a curious disease which seemed incorrigible:his body was covered with boils,so that every year there would always be a few holes perforated.Some might be cured one year,but the next year more holes would show up here and there.For many years no one could cure this disease thoroughly.lt always broke out in summer though it became not so serious by the late autumn.
