The Padri War was fought from 1803 until 1837 in West Sumatra between the Padris and the Adats . The latter asked for the help of the Dutch , who intervened from 1821 and helped the Adats defeat the Padri faction. The conflict intensified in the 1830s, as the war soon centered on Bonjol, the fortified last stronghold of the Padris. It finally fell in 1837 [6] after being besieged for three years, and along with the exile of Padri leader Tuanku Imam Bonjol , the conflict died out.

The British government appointed a series of administrative heads of British India in the 1830s (" Governor-General of India " starting in 1833): Lord William Bentinck (1828-1835), Sir Charles Metcalfe, Bt (1835-1836), and The Lord Auckland (1836-1842). The Government of India Act 1833 was enacted to remove the East India Company 's remaining trade monopolies and divested it of all its commercial functions, renewing the Company's political and administrative authority for another twenty years. It invested the Board of Control with full power and authority over the Company.

The English Education Act by the Council of India in 1835 reallocated funds from the East India Company to spend on education and literature in India. In 1837, the British East India company replaced Persian with local vernacular in various provinces as the official and court language. However, in the northern regions of the Indian subcontinent, Urdu instead of Hindi was chosen to replace Persian. [8] [9]

NOTE : This outline is designed to provide a bit of guidance as you read volume 1 of The Story of the Stone . I am less interested at this point in your appreciation of the novel as a "literary work" than I am in the book as a reflection of Chinese culture (world view, aesthetics, values, life-styles, etc.). Don't worry about the names.

D. First 80 chapters of the novel commonly known as The Story of the Stone; written by Cao Xue-qin (W/G, Ts'ao Hsueh-ch'in, d. 1763); descended from Chinese Bannerman-Bondservant family; grand holdings in Nanjing confiscated by Yongzheng emperor for family's dishonesty and incompetence

G. Hawkes translation (Story of the Stone; five vols.) is by far the best; takes into account linguistic and other subtleties, rendered in the British idiom

In today's classrooms the teaching of multicultural literature featuring female protagonists is vital. The reasons are two-fold: teachers should not only emphasize the commonalties between all people from diverse backgrounds, but also bring females to the forefront of the study of literature because the texts studied have typically featured only males in multicultural settings and/or with differing ethnic roots.

Classrooms where the traditional classics dominate seldom give students of diverse backgrounds the opportunity to read about those like themselves. In addition, the American and British literature focus of the standard junior and senior (English III and IV) high school curriculum content rarely offers a female as writer or heroine. The canon may now include works by ethnic writers, but they are most often male such as James Baldwin or Richard Wright.

In an increasingly diverse country, students need to find themselves in their reading as they engage in that crucial goal of adolescence --formulation of self, an identity. Such reading experiences, however, can cause difficulties for those students who represent the culture being studied, particularly where classes contain relatively few students from diverse backgrounds. Dilg (1995) reminds us of this pitfall:

This passage from Chapter 2 marks the beginning of Janie’s spiritual and sexual awakening. She is a young girl under the care of her grandmother, and this incident propels her upon her quest to reach her horizon. The embrace between the bee and the flowers imprints itself upon Janie as an idealized vision of love—a moment of mutual, reciprocal fulfillment. The flowers arch to meet the arriving bee, and the consequent union of the two provides each partner something desired. Janie searches for such a give-and-take love over the course of the entire novel.
