Chapter Summary

Tracing the revisions and shifts of editorial strategies of The Ladies' Journal, this chapter focuses on the intertwined relationships among women, literature, and the emergence of modern China. It will also look into a bewildering question in literary history, namely, how do we approach literature of the ambiguous period between the late Qing era and the May Fourth period? In the early years of the twentieth century, what exactly was going on between the writers of the thereby labeled ?traditional? or ?old-fashioned? school and those of the ?new? school? Is there any possibility of reconstructing the historical reality of this period? By no means do I propose to answer these questions completely but rather to raise them and to offer possible conduits to their solution.

Keywords: gender; late Qing era; modern China; The Ladies' Journal
