Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first sweeping collection of twentieth-century Chinese literature, this book covers the wide spectrum of genres from both before and after the Communist takeover in 1949. With a generous selection of new translations commissioned for this volume, readers will find the best short fiction, poetry, and essays from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

Book News Annotation:

This collection of 20th century Chinese literature offers short fiction, poetry, and essays from 1918 to the communist takeover in 1949, and from that period to the present. Selections from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong represent the defiant spirit of the pre- Mao years, the socialist tradition, and the creative expression that followed Mao's death. Includes biographical sketches of the writers, and an introduction outlining political and literary trends in China. No index.
