Prostitute Storyteller and Shanghai's Entertainment Culture in the Late Qing Dynasty

ZHOU Wei;School of Marxism, Changshu Institute of Technology;  
In the late Qing Dynasty,the Suzhou Pingtan was combined with prostitutes, who became prostitute storytellers. Their growth and decline in the social environment of the Shanghai concession had a close interac-tion with the traditional literati and the emerging merchant class. The establishment and shaping process of their public image had the active participation of the traditional literati, which was reflected in the evaluation of the art level and the founding of "Shu Xian Hua Bang". In their daily life, their interaction with the traditional literati was the continuation of the former literati culture of entertainment in Shanghai. They not only formed an alliance with the emerging merchant class, but also opened up a distinctive commercial entertainment culture. This is a betrayal of culture in the view of the traditional literati. It also reflects the contradiction and helplessness of their identity in the changing environment of the Shanghai concession.
