Description : This book examines the development of Chinese childrens literature from the late Qing to early Republican era. It highlights the transnational flows of knowledge, texts, and cultures during a time when childrens literature in China and the West was developing rapidly. Drawing from a rich archive of periodicals, novels, tracts, primers, and textbooks, the author analyzes how Chinese childrens literature published by Protestant missionaries and Chinese educators in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries presented varying notions of childhood. In this period of dramatic transition from the dynastic Qing empire to the new Republican China, young readers were offered different models of childhood, some of which challenged dominant Confucian ideas of what it meant to be a child. This volume sheds new light on a little-explored aspect of Chinese literary history. Through its contributions to the fields of childrens literature, book history, missionary history, and translation studies, it enhances our understanding of the negotiations between Chinese and Western cultures that shaped the publication and reception of Chinese texts for children.
Description : Convincingly breaking with the 'May Fourth' paradigm, Questions of Style argues a radically new way of understanding the relationship between New Literature and other styles of modern Chinese writing.
