Field of Life and Death and Tales of Hulan River / Edition 1by Xiao Hong, Howard (Trans.) Goldblatt, Hong Xiao, Howard Goldblatt
Pub. Date: 01/01/2002
Publisher: Cheng & Tsui Company
This updated and extensively revised edition of two key works brings to life the woman considered by many to be China's first feminist novelist: Xiao Hong (1911-1942). Set in the rural China in which Xiao grew up, these two masterpieces expand on many themes, including the plight of peasants and the role of women in society. With a realistic style that has been said to rival "Tolstoy's sweep, Flaubert's detachment and Ba Jin's compassion," Xiao gives us an unflinching, surprisingly lyrical, and often wryly humorous account of the difficult lives of these characters. This is an updated and extensively revised new edition.
