dc.description.abstractPu Songling’s “Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio” is one of the most time-honored short classical works of fiction in Chinese literature, containing elements from both the real and supernatural world. The story portrays and criticizes the imperial examinations in ancient China, with an underlying theme of the power and nobility of love, illustrated using romances between humans and supernatural beings like ghosts and demons. Furthermore, the novel inherited the fine traditions of ancient prose: an unexpected yet logical plot and typical characterization. Since the 1960s, “Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio” were often made into films. The television series released in 1986 further refined the plot creatively, channeling the inventiveness of the original stories. Both are works of different creators and were created 300 years apart. This paper will analyze “Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio” by comparison of the characters, plot and ideological content in the classic stories and the modern television series. From a macro view, I discovered that the TV series and the novel are largely similar in terms of the main characters, plot and ideological content. However, from a micro view, the differences between them are obvious and it shows the author’s own creative spirit.
