Publisher Comments:

This unique four-story collection juxtaposes the Chinese writing master Lu Hsun’s pre-revolutionary fiction about rural women’s personal sacrifices to custom and social expectations with Ding Ling’s revolutionary inspirational literature of women’s survival despite wartime atrocities. The result is a fascinating collection about the force of tradition and the historical moments that empower women to renegotiate their position in society.

Named the “commander of China’s cultural revolution” by Mao Zedong, Lu Hsun (1881–1936) is one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century.

Ding Ling (1904–1985) was one of modern China’s most famous writers and cultural revolutionaries.

Synopsis:

Two of China's greatest 20th century writers renegotiate woman's sense of self and place

About the Author

Ding Lng was the pseudonym of Jiang Bingzhi (October 12, 1904 - March 4, 1986), a contemporary Chinese author from Linli, Hunan province. She is most noted for Miss Sophie's Diary, published in 1927, and later her Communist literature, including The Sun Shines Over the Sanggan River, which won the Stalin Prize for literature in 1951.
