This collection of short stories features a selection of 12 stories from Lu Xun's Call to Arms and Wandering, including "The New-Year Sacifice", "A Madman's Diary", "Kong Yiji", "Medicine", together with "Forging the Swords" from the collection Old Tales Retold.





A towering figure in the literary history of twentieth-century China, Lu Xun has exerted immense and continuous influence through his short stories, which remain today as powerful as they were first written. Echoes of these stories can still be heard in the fictional works from both sides of the Taiwan Strait in the eighties and nineties. 

Like many Chinese intellectuals searching for a solution to China's problem, Lu Xun went to Japan where he studied medicine, a choice he later abandoned for a career in writing, which he considered to be a far more effective weapon to save China. A prolific author of pungent and "dagger-like" essays, Lu Xun is also a tireless translator of Western critical and literary works. His fictional works have been translated into more than twenty lanugages.

Gladys Yang and Yang Xianyi are the most distinguished team of Chinese-English translators. Besides Lu Xun, they also translated many classics of traditional Chinese literature. This bilingual edition also carries an introduction by Professor David Pollard.
