《红楼梦》,原名《石头记》,曹雪芹著,中国古代四大名著之一。因当时社会环境和手抄流传,使仅保存80回,现版本很多,通行本后40回高鹗续(或无名氏),对作者原意篡改极大且对古本进行过修改,特别是结局,贾家毋庸置疑会走向衰亡,而不会像续本那样复兴。此书是一部具有高度思想性和艺术性的伟大作品,作者根据家族的兴衰的艺术升华,对封建科举制度、婚姻自由、等级制度及社会统治思想等都进行了深刻的批判。(A Dream in Red Mansions, originally known as the Story of the Stone is written by Cao Xueqin, and it is one of the four ancient classics in China. Because of the social environment and handwritten copy spreading, only 80 chapters are kept and there are a large number of editions. In the popular edition with the last 40 chapters written by Gao E (or Anonym), Cao Xueqin's original ideas have been distorted greatly and the ancient version has also been modified, especially the end where Family Jia was falling without doubt, but it was reviving in the continued version. The book is a great work with high ideology and artistic quality. On the basis of artistic sublimation of the family's rise and fall, the author conducts profound criticism of feudal examination system, marriage freedom, hierarchy system and social ruling thought. )
