Memory, Violence Queues: Lu Xun Interprets China takes a new look at the writer whose name is synonymous with the radical newness of modern Chinese literature.
It identifies key moments in Lu Xun’s creative development and places them in the context of the turbulent era in which China became a republic.
The result is a fresh and nuanced interpretation of a range of works, from fiction and essays to classical poems.
The analyses highlight the writer’s engagement with epochal political events–the discarding of the queue style of hair, the failed monarchical restoration of Zhang Xun, the Five Martyrs incident of the leftist literary movement, and the parallel movement in art.
A distinctive feature is the extensive use of visual materials and contemporary photographs.
Through her original approach, Eva Shan Chou restores historical complexity to the literary conscience of modern China.
