Abstract: This thesis is a report on the application of Barcelona Sanchez’s typical model of romantic love to the Chinese literary work Dream in Peony Pavilion. In this play, the main theme is about love between two young people who are not supposed to have love desire freely. Language of emotion has been widely believed to be conceptualized metaphorically and metonymically. Barcelona Sanchez has identified some love metaphors and metonymies in Romeo and Juliet and how they apply to the typical model of romantic love. The similar attempt will be done in Dream in Peony Pavilion to find out whether this model can be applied to a Chinese text. A conclusion gradually emerges from this discussion is that this model can be partly applicable to Dream in Peony Pavilion.
