At present, little is known to the academic circle about the author of the novel Fengyuejian
in the Qing Dynasty, neither the unified view on the author's name and his native place.On the basis of newly discovered documents such as Wushibingyitangzhipu in Gushi
and Wushijiamo in Guangzhou
, also the introduction of the author in Fengyuejianba
, it can be inferred that the author of Fengyuejian
is Wu Yitang (1779—1829), whose birth place was Zhangzhuangji, Gushi County, Guangzhou, Henan Province (now Zhangzhuang Township, Huaibin County, Henan Province).And the Wu family was an imperial family of Gushi in the Qing Dynasty.
