Former Residence of Guo Moruo
Former Residence of Guo Moruo Former Residence of Guo Moruo

Guo Moruo(1892-1978) was a noted novelist, poet, historian and literary critic. He took part in the May Fourth Movement of 1919, and joined the Chinese Communist Party in 1927. After spending several years in japan, he retumed to China during the war against the Japanese invaders. He worked closely with Zhou Enlai, and held a number of important posts after the founding of the People" Republic of China.

Guo Moruo"s former residence has an interesting history. In the early Qing Dynasty, the land was a garden belonging to the notorious official He Shen. In the mid-19th century, it served as a straw storage and horse paddock for Prince Gong" nearby mansion. During the first half of the 20th century, the prince" descendants sold it to a leading pharmacy in the capital.

After 1949, it was the embassy of the Mongolian People" Republic, and the n Song Ching-ling, honorary chairman of the People" Republic of China, lived there for a short time. It was the home of Guo Moruo from 1963 till his death.

When my husband made a visit to China in 1973, he metand talked with Guo Moruo in his home. We also know his youngest daughter, and have attended parties and other events held in the residence

The grounds are spacious and contain a double courtyard house, which is preserved much the way Guo left it at his death. The buildings include his office and living quarters, his wife"s paingting studio. An unusual feature is that several of the structures are connected by heated corridors, which was a luxury in Beijing in those days.
