Product Description

This classic treatise on Chinese literature was originally published in English in 1959. Its author is none other than Lu Xun (1881-1936), one of the most critically and culturally significant literary figures in 20th century China, and figurehead of China’s New Culture movement. A Brief History of Chinese Fiction originated from Lu Xun’s own lectures on the historical development of Chinese fiction from early myths and legends to finely-honed epic novels of eighteenth and nineteenth century China. This remarkable book is therefore one of the first systematic studies of the history of Chinese fiction by a Chinese writer. A core text on Chinese literature, it still commands great influence among Chinese and Western scholars even today.
