Excerpt

The basic storyline of A Dream of Red Mansions focuses primarily on the Chia family. There are two dukes in the family — Duke Ning-kuo and Duke Jung-kuo. Chia Fu, the elder grandson of Duke Ning-kuo, dies young, so the second grandson, Chia Ching, succeeds to the title after the death of his father, Chia Tai-hua. However, since his heart is set on a religious life, he relinquishes his title to his son, Chia Chen, and devotes his time and energy to religious study, hoping to become an immortal after death.
