This is the traditional Chinese edition of Jin Ping Mei (金瓶梅), the forbidden classical Chinese fiction by Lanling Xiaoxiao Sheng, edited by YeShell.

《金瓶梅》,又名《金瓶梅词话》,中國明代小說,四大奇書之一,中国史上第一部文人独立创作的长篇白话世情章回小说,作者署为兰陵笑笑生。由於详细描述了古代市井平民的生活和社会现实,歷來研究的学说不少,通称金瓶梅学。

作者

兰陵是山东峄县(今枣庄市)旧称,关于作者最盛行的說法是「後七子」領袖王世貞。但也有许多人持不同的意见,一般认为可以推测出的:

作者是嘉靖时代的文人,因为作品中出现文人的语气;
补作吴语,作者应该是江南人;
袁宏道的《觞政》成于万历三十四年以前,而沈德符《萬曆野获编》说:“袁中郎《觞政》,以《金瓶梅》配《水浒传》为外典,余恨未得见。”可知《金瓶梅》的成书,是在嘉靖末年到万历(1573年-1620年)中期。

《金瓶梅》传播开来之后,学术界对于其作者一直有不同观点,有五大說:王世贞说、屠隆说、徐渭说、李开先说、王稚登說。

目前,中国大陆山东学者王夕河表示他研究出《金瓶梅》的作者是“丁惟宁”,其观点认为:“兰陵笑笑生”就是山东方言“莲庐修修生”,而此人正是丁惟宁。成為今日的一種新說。

內容

小说从《水浒传》中引出,根据《水浒传》中西門慶勾引潘金莲,杀潘夫武大郎,最后被武松所杀的情节展开,略加改动,描写了西门庆从发迹到淫乱而死的故事。

《金瓶梅》的书名从小说中西门庆的三个妾和寵婢潘金莲、李瓶儿、龐春梅的名字中各取一字而成。实际上有更深一层涵义,即“金”代表金钱,“瓶”代表酒,“梅”代表女色。

《金瓶梅》像写日记一样,它的故事是逐年逐月展开的。《金瓶梅》开篇说“话说宋徽宗皇帝政和年间”,表明《金瓶梅》写的是北宋末年政和年间的故事,恰好《金瓶梅》前六回写的潘金莲和西门庆偷情的故事是从《水浒传》中抄袭来的,读者早已知道《水浒传》的故事发生在北宋末年政和年间,于是更加深信不疑地认为《金瓶梅》写的真是北宋末年政和年间的故事。
