The subject of the Romance is the conflict between love and honor of a feudal family, and that of the Dream is the life and death of a lover. In the former, love triumphs over honor, and in the latter it further triumphs over death. In the mean time, we have in the Western countries Shakespeare’s tragedies in rivality with Chinese classics, though they are two hundred years later than the Romance but earlier than Long Life Hall and Blood-stained Fan. In the Romance, the lovers are separated by the mother’s idea of honor and re-united by the hero’s success in the civil service examinations, while in Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet are separated by enmity between their parents but re-united by death. The happy ending of the Romance shows the progress of Chinese civilization while the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet hints at the conquest of enmity by reason which foretells the triumph of realistic and scientific spirit. Here we can see the different development of Oriental and Occidental civilisation.
