Abstract

Within female writings of Qing Dynasty, religion, especially Buddhism and Taoism, had great influence. They either believed in religion when they were young, or they practiced it under the influence of their families, or they turned to seek liberation in religious faith in the face of major changes. These life experiences related to religion coloured the language and style of female poets with relevant marks, which further influenced the appearance of female literary creation in Qing Dynasty and gave birth to another important realm of female literary creation.
