長恨歌密碼

(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(30)
 白居易根據楊貴妃秘聞寫就〈長恨歌〉,   為何卻引來各路僧、道、官、匪的追殺?      楊貴妃究竟死於馬嵬驛,還是逃生日本?      歷史事實:   天寶四年七月(745年),二十六歲的楊太真還俗受冊封為貴妃。唐玄宗李隆基專寵楊貴妃,兩人歌舞盡歡,恩愛非凡,無心朝政。楊氏家族胡作非為,使朝野充滿了巨大的怨恨。天寶十四年,安祿山發動叛亂,兵鋒直指長安。唐玄宗偕楊貴妃倉皇潛逃,途經馬嵬驛(今陝西興平市西),隨駕禁軍軍士嘩變,亂刀殺死了楊國忠。在將士的不斷逼迫下,唐玄宗也只能忍痛賜死貴妃,最終楊貴妃被親信宦官高力士秘密縊死,時年三十八歲。這就是白居易的〈長恨歌〉中「六軍不發無奈何,宛轉蛾眉馬前死」的典故。      千古謎團:   五十年後,詩人白居易與友人陳鴻、王質夫一道在馬嵬驛附近的仙遊寺遊玩。有感於唐玄宗與楊貴妃的愛情悲劇,王質夫提議白居易創作一首詩篇,記錄下這場生死愛戀。白居易立即揮筆寫就了一首〈長恨歌〉,將玄宗、貴妃的恩愛過往一一記入了詩篇,傳為千古佳作。然而關於貴妃被處死的過程,竟毫無史料記載。再加上白居易〈長恨歌〉稱唐玄宗回鑾後要改葬楊貴妃,結果卻是「馬嵬坡下泥中土,不見玉顏空死處」,連屍骨都找不到,更由此引發了千百年來關於楊貴妃生死之謎以及東渡日本的種種推測。      楊貴妃舊居興慶宮中遺失已久的五弦琵琶,   扯動的卻是鬼影幢幢、各方陰謀算計,   以及大唐開朝時最隱晦的盛世傳寶……      大唐元和元年(西元806年),詩人白居易與友人陳鴻、王質夫到馬嵬驛遊玩。在皇太后族兄王質夫所講的宮中秘聞的激發下,白居易一氣呵成寫下千古名篇〈長恨歌〉。文人陳鴻也寫了一篇傳奇小說《長恨歌傳》。      十年後,被貶江州的白居易在潯陽江頭聽到一名中年歌女彈奏琵琶,驚為神曲,遂寫下名篇〈琵琶行〉相贈。不料此女將隨身的紫檀琵琶回贈白居易,向他發出警告後突然投江。不日,大明宮急急傳來消息,王質夫下落不明,太常博士陳鴻家中人去樓空。      白居易受到什麼危險?大明宮中發生了什麼?女神探裴玄靜陷入玲瓏困局。在仔細回顧蘭亭序案和璇璣圖案發生的一切之後,裴玄靜將視線集中到了六十年前馬嵬坡下的宮廷迷案上。一時間,潛藏在暗處的僧、道、官、匪盡數出動,明與暗的較量、新與舊的殺戮瞬息上演在大唐帝國的每個角落。      當謊言即將揭穿、各方勢力浮出水面之時,《蘭亭序密碼》和《璇璣圖密碼》鋪墊的大懸念終於轟然引爆……

cannot be entertained by how the author portraited the emperor

The book has a very nice historical backdrop and would have much potential. The characters all have allure either based on history or imagination. The story line can be interesting at times. We can disregard the writer's periodic use of modern words and focus on the beautiful references to Tang dynasty poems etc.


However, I really cannot like this book, due to how the author portraited the emperor, as all knowing, sacrificing for the country etc. This is rather unfortunate, she is probably writing to appease to modern day censorship. But this makes for unsatisfactory entertainment. When you have to be boxed in by crappy totalitarian ideologies, you don't write entertaining books.
