Lu Xun Selected Essays BSS032


Lu Xun is arguably not the greatest writer of modern China, but his passion to truly work toward the health of the nation, was to diagnose the nation as an author rather than a physician. He abandoned the study of medicine because he thought he could change society through his writings. Most of his short stories were written between 1918 and 1925; but he perfected his essay style in the 1930's, when he resided in Shanghai. Most of his essays are incorporated in the textbooks of elementary and high schools in China. Essays include "What is required of us as fathers today," "Teachers," "Silent China," Literature and Perspiration," The new Don Quixotes of the Chinese republic," and much more.
