  • 红楼梦

    社会主义时代的读者,应当把《红楼梦》作为当时社会阶级斗争的历史反映,运用历史唯物主义观点有分析有批判地阅读。当然,这并不是说,《红楼梦》所叙述的就是个别家庭、个别人物的实事记录;我们所说的作为“历史”来阅读,是因为它用典型的艺术形象反映了封建社会的阶级斗争,揭露了贵族统治阶级和封建制度的黑暗、腐朽的各个方面,以及它的不可避免的崩溃的必然趋势。封建阶级的贵族社会,在这部小说里给我们留下了完整而深刻的真实形象。因而,在丰富我们对历史的感性认识的意义上,可以说,读一读《红楼梦》,有助于我们更清楚地了解中国的封建社会。……《红楼梦》第四回“葫芦僧判断葫芦案”的一节文字,可以看作这部小说的总纲。这节文字写了清朝贵族统治的所谓“护官符”:“凡做地方官的都有一个私单,上面写的是本省最有权势极富贵的大乡绅名姓,各省皆然;倘若不知,一时触犯了这样的人家,不但官爵,只怕连性命也难保呢!——所以叫做‘护官符’。 ...
