About this item

This anthology of Chinese literature gathers entire pieces and excerpts by about 50 Chinese writers during the period from 1911 to the present, revealing how the Chinese soul endured through the political and economic hardships of the 20th century. Pieces selected include essays, speeches, and letters, as well as poetry and fiction, including both pulp fiction and literary fiction. Writers represented include Gao Xingjian, Mao Zedong, Bei Dao, and Cui Jian. Each selection begins with brief notes on the author. Readings are grouped according to three eras: the Republican era 1911-49, the Revolutionary era 1949-76, and the post-Mao era 1976-present. Each section begins with brief chronology of the period and contains a short intro to the era, giving political, social, and literary context. The book’s introduction gives a brief, readable overview of Chinese history and the place of literature in it. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
