Description

This title offers a revisionist analysis employing an anthropological method to interpret folklore in the works of understudied modern Chinese writers.Beyond developing a national essence as an alternative to imitating Western culture, the six writers discussed in this text wanted to express their identities and introduce local or remote areas where they grew up to urban readers. A harmonious relationship between tradition and modernity in the modern canon of Chinese literature can be recognized.
