summary Æ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Hong Ying

read K The Art of Love Hong Ying ☆ 8 review K The Art of Love summary ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF R Julian Bell son of Vanessa Bell and darling of the Bloomsbury set has arrived in China hungry for experience Their mutual attraction leads to a passionate phy sical and spiritual sojourn in Beijing Unable. This is a fictional story about real life people Julian Bell and Ling ShuhuaMy TakeI suspect it s a cultural difference but I did not find K The Art of Love to be erotic Primarily because I thought Julian Bell was a naive selfish egocentric boy playing with people He wanted what he couldn t have and as soon as he could have it he didn t want itAs far as I m concerned there was no loss to the world when he died His family YeahMy father in law was an artist and acuainted with the Bloomsbury group and he wasn t impressed with them or their art I suspect it was the art or how it was applied all over the house that was his main bone of contention with them I haven t paid much attention to their personal lives as I ve been fascinated by the art and how it was applied all over the housegrinand the bits of Hong Ying s story that touches on the BellWoolfFry household help me understand better why Dad wasn t inspired by them A group of people caught in the public eye who felt they had to continue to live up to their professed philosophies however much it hurtJulian was probably typical of celebrity kids who feel a need to be as good as their parents and I suspect he struggled all his life between feeling like the golden boy and wondering if he was any good He definitely absorbed a sense of superiority from his extended family and believed anything that was dissimilar to what he or his family considered uality was inferior or childish He was interested in play than reality wait ll you get to his foray onto the battlefield oh brother and he was extremely uick to interpret people s actions as he pleased without any input from them And then base his decisions upon his interpretationsHong Ying s focus though is on the sexual side of the Bell philosophy with Julian unable to comprehend the wrongness of his selfish actions It s odd Hong Ying in his introduction hoped that the reader is able to feel the eroticism of his story Unfortunately it failed for me Yes the erotica is there but I found the Daoist philosophy about sex interesting than reading about a sexually frustrated woman eager to apply the Daoist teachings from the Jade Chamber Classic a legendary Art of Love with a self absorbed young man who is too terrified of the future and doesn t sound like he s any good in bed Then there s their insta love for which Ying doesn t provide a reason It s as if he needs to have them get together so voilaJulian suddenly decides he wants to kiss this married Chinese woman who has not indicated any interest in him and when she jumps when he puts her hand on his trouser clad cock this is his reactionJulian was nonplussed Had he moved too fast Was it his erection that had frightened herThe writing is stilted in parts and chunks of it sway between show and tell with a sense of being part of an outline that never got filled in but I believe some of the stiltedness is due to English being Hong Ying s second language To be honest I found this story dumb and annoying I loved seeing this snapshot of the China of 1936 and how people lived the different beliefs Now if only we could have explored it without Julian getting in the wayThe StoryJulian Bell has received a invitation to teach at a Chinese university in Wuchang where he meets Lin Cheng the wife of the dean of his department A woman with whom he is almost instantly fascinated and pursues in spite of her reluctance A reluctance that falls away into an affairThe CharactersJulian Bell is the son of Vanessa and Clive Bell of Bloomsbury fame he s rude selfish uick to defend his turf and a child in a man s body A renowned poet he alternately basks in and uestions his abilities even as he subconsciously appears to seek his own deathLin Cheng in real life Ling Shuhua is a renowned Chinese writer the editor of the Wuhan Daily Literary Supplement and the wife of Professor Cheng the dean of the School of Arts Both are part of the New Moon SocietyWizard and Vole his names for the two servants who come with the house the university has found for himSir Harold Acton is teaching at Peking University Yi is the Chinese student Julian inveigles into helping him find the Red Army so Julian can play revolutionary Too bad he s so clueless about the truth of warThe CoverThe cover at first appears to be a pale pink fabric with handpainted blossoms descending from the upper left and a large K embroidered in the center but when you really look it s a woman s naked backside from shoulders to just below her buttocksThe title references both Julian and Lin with K representing where Lin stands in the line up of Julian s lovers and the art of love being Lin s Daoist philosophy combining to create K The Art of Love
