by Lu Xun
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.
Lu Xun's stories both indict outdated Chinese traditions and embrace China's cultural richness and individuality.
This volume presents brand-new translations by Julia Lovell of all 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.
