About the Author: Pearl S. Buck

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck was a bestselling and Nobel Prize–winning author. Her classic novel The Good Earth (1931) was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and William Dean Howells Medal. Born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, Buck was the daughter of missionaries and spent much of the first half of her life in China, where many of her books are set. In 1934, civil unrest in China forced Buck back to the United States. Throughout her life she worked in support of civil and women’s rights, and established Welcome House, the first international, interracial adoption agency. In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont.

Dans la Chine d'autrefois, le seul rôle dévolu aux femmes de riches était celui d'épouse et de mère. Ce rôle, la fine et intelligente Ailien Wu ne le supporte plus. Pour y échapper, elle se servira très adroitement des traditions, celles-là mêmes qui l'avaient liée pendant si longtemps.

Pavillon de femmes est le roman de Pearl Buck qui fait le mieux comprendre ce qu'était l'ancestrale Chine des grandes familles, mais c'est aussi tout le drame des rapports de l'homme et de la femme à chaque âge de la vie.
