Summary

'The most hated man in the village had been beaten to death . . . and some of the villagers had dug out his heart and liver, then fried and eaten them, for courage'Lu Xun (1881-1936) is one of the founding figures of modern Chinese literature. His celebrated short stories assemble a powerfully unsettling portrait of the superstition, poverty and complacence 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, including 'The Real Story of Ah-Q', 'Diary of a Madman', 'The Divorce' and 'New Year's Sacrifice', among others.Julia Lovell's major new translation of Lu Xun's short stories is accompanied by an introduction to the writer's political and literary life. This edition also includes suggested further reading, a note on Chinese names and pronunciation, a chronology and notes.Translated with an Introduction by JULIA LOVELLWith an Afterword by YIYUN LI
