"Modern Chinese Stories and Novellas, 1919-1949" brings together some of the best and most historically significant works of short fiction written in China in this century -- including such important figures in the development of Chinese modernism as Lu Hsuan, Mao Tun, Ting Ling, and Shen Ts'ung-wen. The companion volume to the highly acclaimed "Traditional Chinese Stories" (Columbia, 1978), this new volume presents modernist short fiction from the thirty-year period leading up to the Communist revolution of 1949, after which Chinese literature entered a new phase of development. The stories range in setting from the late Ch'ing dynasty through the Sino-Japanese War and the early Communist years, and range in length from brief tales to substantial short novels. Though a large number of the writers represented are leftists, works of all political viewpoints have been included to provide the full literary panorama of one of the most fertile periods of Chinese creative activity.
