The Real Story of Ah-Q and Other Tales of China

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A major new translation of the complete fiction of the father of modern Chinese literature In the early twentieth century, as China came up against the realities of the modern world, Lu Xun effected a shift in Chinese letters away from the ornate, obsequious literature of the aristocrats to the plain, expressive literature of the masses. His celebrated short stories assemble a powerfully unsettling portrait of the superstition, poverty, and complacency that he perceived in late imperial China and in the revolutionary republic that toppled the last dynasty in 1911. This volume presents Lu Xun's complete fiction in bracing new translations and includes such famous works as "The Real Story of Ah-q," "Diary of a Madman," and "The Divorce." Together they expose a contradictory legacy of cosmopolitan independence, polemical fractiousness, and anxious patriotism that continues to resonate in Chinese intellectual life today.Lu Xun (Lu Hsun) is arguably the greatest writer of modern China, and is considered by many to be the founder of modern Chinese literature. This book presents translations of Lu Xun's stories, including "The Real Story of Ah-Q', "Diary of a Madman", "A Comedy of Ducks", "The Divorce" and "A Public Example", among others.

China has been a wellspring of storytelling for over 2,000 years. Sadly, this fantastic literature is little known in the west outside the halls of academia, though a handful of recent 20th century authors have attained a respectable following. The stories in this volume date from the sixth century A.D. to the early part of the 20th century, and will give the listener a good feel for the subject. Astonishingly, the Chinese enjoyed from the earliest times many of the genres we take for granted today, from romance and love to adventure and satire. There are seven stories in Volume 1. In "The White Monkey," by Anonymous, a general's honor and self respect are on the line when his wife is kidnapped."The Jade Goddess," retold by Lin Yu Tang, is like a fine piece of exquisite porcelain. This wonderful story from the 6th century is a thing of delicate beauty. Will an artist put aside his creative gifts for the sake of love?"The Canary Murders," by Feng Meng-lung, is a twelfth century forerunner ofthe detective story which attempts to sort out a string of mysterious deaths."The Book Worm," by P'u Sung-ling is a humorous satire about a bibliophile who suddenly finds love.In "K'ung I-Chi," by Lu Hsun, an old-fashioned scholar loses his way in life.In "Mr. Pan In Distress," by Yeh Shao-Chun, war threatens the settled life of a provincial educator."Intoxicating Spring Nights," by Yu Ta-fu, is a look at the effects of a newly industrialized society. 1.
