Short

One of the most creative and brilliant episodes in modern Chinese history, the cultural and literary flowering that takes the name of the May Fourth Movement, is the subject of this comprehensive and insightful book. This is the first study of modern Chinese literature that shows how China’s Confucian traditions were combined with Western influences to create a literature of new values and consciousness for the Chinese people.
