Analyze Two Main Characteristics of Vietnamese Women through Cultural Language

Author(s): Nguyen Thi Tuyet Hanh


Nguyen Du's The Tale of Kieu, based on the characteristics of women in famous Vietnamese literature, is Vietnam's most famous story, with three main characters: Kim Trong, Thuy Kieu, and Thuy Van. Thuy Kieu is beautifully educated, but her family needs money, so she sells herself and works as a singer, servant, and concubine. She is a talented woman, but her fate is very bad. Author Nguyen Du portrays Thuy Kieu as the fate of Vietnamese women at the hands of the Vietnamese feudal system under the Le Dynasty. This article uses cultural linguistics, which encompasses language in morph syntax, semantics, pragmatics, culture, and conceptualization in cultural schemata, cultural categories, and cultural metaphors. Academic research is considered a key point in the reform perspective of Vietnamese women in the 20th century. In this article, we will discuss two characteristics of women. A woman who is the embodiment of beauty and a woman who is the embodiment of tragic destiny 100 students read the text aloud and chose to highlight research objectives based on an analysis of practices related to Vietnamese women's characteristics. Through qualitative research, data was collected from student reflection notes for a five-hour semester course. This topic is about selecting, reading, and choosing sentences in text, comparing them to other sentences, and providing the best sentences to explain the data. Research shows that two characteristics of women, women as embodiment and women as the embodiment of tragic destiny, are evident in the text of Kew's Story. Therefore, it is recommended to show sympathy, respect, and admiration to Nguyen Du, who condemns the unjust and brutal feudal society that deprives and tramples on women's right to life. Therefore, Vietnamese women today are believed to be equal to men and promote institutional engagement to enhance women's desire to live a beautiful and happy life.
