94 Lee, Mabel; Chiu-Yee Cheung, & Sue Wiles (edited by) Lu Xun and Australia
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2016 1925588017 / 9781925588019 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. 206 pages Lu Xun (1881-1936) published A Madman's Diary (1918) at the height of a Nietzsche craze in China. His creative genius, powerful intellect and writing style, and profound erudition in Western philosophy and literature, contributed to his effortlessly writing this first example of 'modern Chinese literature'. This short story was ‘modern’ because it was written in the vernacular language instead of the classical Chinese language, it addressed contemporary issues, and it was informed by modern Western literary models. This book is a collection of essays by Australian writers and/or academics arising from their connections with or inspiration from Lu Xun. Contains 23 essays. ID292097
