From Event to Myth: the Historical Reconstruction of “The Suicide of Zhao Wuzhen”

XU Fei;School of History and Culture, Lanzhou University;  
Not satisified with the marriage, Zhao Wuzhen, a bride in Changsha city, committed suicide in the bride's sedan. At that time, the May 4 th Movement was in full swing, so her suicide was directly connected with woman's liberation. Mao Zedong and other intellectuals of new culture utilized that event to criticize the traditional marriage system on the Ta Kung Pao. As the main media, Hunan Ta Kung Pao played a vital role in reconstructing the profile of Zhao Wuzhen. The subsequent story tellers also reconstructed the suicide of Zhao Wuzhen for different purposes and thus the historical narration of that event became increasingly abundant. After that, "the Suicide of Zhao Wuzhen" appeared in many books mainly focused on women's liberation movement and young Mao Zedong. Besides, Zhao Wuzhen turned into the representative character of the women's liberation movement and the event also symbolized the heroic behavior of Mao Zedong when he was young. As time went by, people gradually paid less attention to the protagonist Zhao Wuzhen. The event of her suicide, after processing, appeared in paintings, calligraphies and art works, an extension of the narrative mode of that event which gradually took shape.
