Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of author names relevant to the discussion on the history of contemporary Chinese literature. In the literary world of the late-1940s, though there were writers and groupings of writers with differing ideological and artistic tendencies, only left-wing literature had an obvious objective and had the power to influence the trend of literature, to impose "norms" on the literary situation. During this period, the leaders and important writers of the left-wing literary world clearly recognized that the socio-political transition and the choice of literary direction ought to be synchronized.

Keywords: contemporary Chinese literature; left-wing writers
