Chapter Summary

This section presents contemporary literature in China in a chronological order from the year 1949 to 1996. During the 1950s and 1960s, the recommendation and "reception" of literary heritage was directly related to the state of contemporary ideological trends and literary campaigns. The contemporary "run off " of the writers active since "May Fourth" had yet another cause: namely that of their being targets of attack during the political and literary campaigns of the 1950s, which led to their expulsion from literary circles, and often to imprisonment or death.

Keywords: China; contemporary literature; literary heritage
