Overview

In Chinese literature of the 1920s and 1930s, the mother takes many forms. This analysis explores the meanings the maternal figure acquired, then engages those meanings in a feminist rereading of the master narratives of modern Chinese intellectual and literary history.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Commenting on works that are realist and romantic, canonical and noncanonical, female and male-authored, and with elite- and oppressed-class subjects, the author draws on feminist literary criticism and the theories of Julia Kristeva, Melanie Klein, and Sigmund Freud to explore the meanings of the maternal figure in Chinese literature. In an attempt to trace the importance of the idea of motherhood to emerging discourses of modernity, nationalism, and revolution, she treats topics such as the oedipal plot, a son's powerlessness vis-<'a>-vis a domineering mother as a metaphor for a lack of political power, the place of young women in modern Chinese society, and representations of wet nurses and dry nurses in autobiographical writing.
