Queering Honglou meng: The “Lust of Mind” Mode of Male Love & Its Afterlives

  • The great eighteenth-century novel Honglou meng《红 楼 梦 》(A Dream of Red Mansions) offers a unique vision of male love:contrasting yiyin 意 淫 (lust of mind) with pifu yinlan 皮肤淫滥 (promiscuous kind of lust), it praises the former as embodied in the male protagonist Jia Baoyu's 贾宝玉 relationships with his four bosom friends. This paper seeks to expound this extraordinary mode of male love, trace its reception and distortion in later derivative works, and draw from it inspirations that may enrich contemporary queer theory and inform LGBT movements in Chinese societies.
