Join The–Dots

Reform the Forbidden City

I read Empress Orchid, a novel by Anchee Min published in Great Britain in 2004. It was about the life of the last empress – Empress Dowager in the late Qing Dynasty. I extended the reading to studying the late Qing empire, which eventually collapsed under the attack of Eight-Nation Alliance. I recited the history through intertwined modern western fashion on a spoken background.
