The weeping willow legend which is represented on tableware, interior designs and more is also known as the Willow pattern. The design varies but the most usual form is as follows: to the right is the country seat of a lordly Chinese Mandarin. The mansion is two stories high and enclosed by a wooden fence. In the foreground is a pavilion, in the background an orange tree and to the right of the pavilion is a peach tree.At one end of a bridge is the famous Willow tree and at the other end is the humble cottage of the gardener. In the upper left-hand corner of the pattern is an island with a cottage on it. Two turtledoves are shown.On the bridge are shown two lovers with a boat; a Mandarin with a whip is near the Willow tree. The legend which these pictures represent is as follows: The Mandarin had only one daughter named Li-Chi, sometimes named Koong-se, Koong-si, or Koong-she, who fell in love with Chang, who had been secretary to Li-Chi's father. One day the Mandarin heard the two young people making vows of eternal love under the orange tree. He severely rebuked them and forbade the unequal match. But the lovers eloped and for a while remained hidden in the gardener's cottage, from which they made their escape in a boat to the island home of Chang.The enraged Mandarin pursued them and would have beaten them to death with a whip, but the gods of old China intervened and rewarded them for their fidelity by changing them into turtledoves. The story is known as the Willow legend because the elopement occurred "when the Willow begins to shed its leaves". This decorative Chinese design is traditionally blue on a white background but is also created in pink, brown, and multi-colored. It was introduced on chinaware in England in the early 1780's at Thomas Turner's porcelain factory in Caughley by Thomas Minton, and the story was later constructed to boost sales of the crockery.Blue Willow has inspired a comic opera, silent movies, children's books, blog posts and Pinterest pins. Blue Willow china versions have been adorned with gold trim for the most discriminating person to, some say, the inspiration for the "Blue Plate Special" at diners. Stories abound.Talented poets who appreciated the Blue Willow pattern story wrote their story versions for those of us, from generations past to today, who love and admire the illustrated love story and the beautiful Blue Willow pattern as tableware, teacups and teapots, drapery, and various textiles

The Routledge Companion to Transnational American Studies provides scholars and students of American Studies with theoretical and applied essays that help to define Transnational American Studies as a discipline and practice. In more than 30 essays, the volume offers a history of the concept of the "transnational" and takes readers from the Barbary frontier to Guam, from Mexico's border crossings to the intifada's contested zones. Together, the essays develop new ways for Americanists to read events, images, sound, literature, identity, film, politics, or performance transnationally through the work of diverse figures, such as Confucius, Edward Said, Pauline Hopkins, Poe, Faulkner, Michael Jackson, Onoto Watanna, and others. This timely volume also addresses presidential politics and interpictorial US history from Lincoln in Africa, to Obama and Mandela, to Trump. The essays, written by prominent global Americanists, as well as the emerging scholars shaping the field, seek to provide foundational resources as well as experimental and forward-leaning approaches to Transnational American Studies.

Judge Dee has been appointed emergency governor of the plague- and drought-ridden Imperial City. As his guards help the city fend off a popular uprising, an aristocrat from one of the oldest families in China suffers an "accident" in a deserted mansion. In The Willow Pattern, the illustrious judge uses his trademark expertise to unravel the mysteries of the nobleman, a shattered vase, and a dead bondmaid. Along the way he encounters a woman who fights with loaded sleeves, a nearly drowned courtesan, and an elaborate trap set for a murderer. Packed with suspense, violence, and romance, The Willow Pattern won’t disappoint Judge Dee’s legions of loyal fans. "The China of old, in Mr. van Gulik’s skilled hands, comes vividly alive again."—Allen J. Hubin, New York Times Book Review
