Additional Information

Introduction

Liu Rushi’s tomb is located in the south of Mount Yu, west to the tomb of Qian Qianyi. It is a protected cultural site at the municipal level. Today, the tomb sits in the north and faces south. Its back against the mountains and its front facing the lake, the tomb is surrounded by the Luo City. On the tomb stands a limestone tablet that bears the inscription “The Tomb of Ms. Eastern River.” This tablet was erected when the tomb was rebuilt after 1949. Liu Rushi is a talented and patriotic women poet living during the late Ming and early Qing period (ca. 17th century). Her love romance with Qian Qianyi was widely known. Later, Qian Qinayi compromised his integrity as he opened the city gate and surrendered to Manchu invaders. Liu once urged Qian to drown himself and die as a martyr for the fallen dynasty. When Qian failed to act according to her recommendation, she attempted at drowning herself as a martyr, though she was rescued afterwards. Liu’s stout patriotism has earned her the reputation of being “a hero among women.”
