Book Description

July 6 2005 Weatherhead Books on Asia

Revolution, foreign occupation, and political, cultural, and economic upheavals defined mid-twentieth-century Chinese society. This new anthology, a sequel to the acclaimed first volume, compiled by Dooling and Kristina Torgeson and covering the early twentieth century, includes an impressive range of literary, personal, and journalistic responses to these tumultuous events. From succinct reportage of contemporary historical circumstances to comic accounts of twentieth-century urban living to carefully stylized modernist works of fiction, the selections in this anthology reflect the diversity, liveliness, humor, and surprising cosmopolitanism of women's writing from the period. This collection also reveals the ways in which women writers imagined and inscribed new meanings to Chinese feminism.

Biographical information on the writers -- including Yang Gang, Bai Wei, Hu Lanxi, Yang Jiang, Zong Pu, Chen Ruoxi, and others -- introduces the selections from their works. Dooling's critical introduction and bibliographical materials further enrich readers'understanding of the role of women's writing in Chinese literary modernity.

Review

Impressive range of literary, personal and journalistic responses to... tumultuous events.

(Connecticut College Magazine)

Review

This stunning collection is not just a great read and a revealing study of gender and the human condition, it will also transform our understanding of which works are important in the period. These writers are independent, observant, profound, and often hilarious. Dooling's anthology finally gives them their due.

(Jingyuan Zhang, Georgetown University, author of Psychoanalysis in China: Literary Transformations, 1919-1949)
