About this book

Language: Chinese

This essay describes the role of the gibbon in the history of Chinese culture, and in Chinese animal lore, as this animal shows up in many places in classical literature

Summary in Chinese:
“两岸猿声啼不住,轻舟已过万重山”,“风急
天高猿啸哀,渚清沙白鸟飞回”,“五月不可触,猿
声天上哀”,长臂猿的形象不仅见于世代相传的李杜
诗篇,还出现在诸多古典文学作品和文献之中。性高
洁、重情义和善采气的长臂猿,似乎出尘脱俗,不仅
贴合了士大夫们的审美趣味,甚至寄托了他们的理想

荷兰*名汉学家高罗佩(Robert van Gulik,
1910—1967)通过长时间亲身饲养长臂猿的经历,澄
清了中国古人对猿的三大认知误区。高氏*对三千年
来中国文学、图像中的猿意象博观约取,横跨文学、
史学、动物学和艺术学等领域,提炼出了中国士人崇
猿的渊源与理念,以及长臂猿在中国文化史上的地位
和人、猿关系的变迁。这一切,都使得高罗佩的这本
“爱之作”《长臂猿考(高罗佩学术*作集)》独出机
杼,并饶有趣味。
