Until now little of China's massive literary output of the last thirty years has been available to American readers. This landmark volume presents a generous sampling in translation of the literature written in the PRC from 1949 to the present. Included here are more than 200 selections: poems, stories, essays, a hsiang-sheng (comic dialogue), and excerpts from novels, plays, movie scripts, and an opera. Among the major writers represented are Ting Ling and Hao Jan (fiction); Ai Ch'ing and Feng Ching-yuan (poetry); T'ien Han and Yang Han-sheng (drama); and Teng T'o and Chou Yang (essays). Literature of the People's Republic of China offers a fascinating glimpse into Chinese life and demonstrates the struggle of creative writers to be true both to their art and to their country's revolution.
