Chapter Summary

According to the author, in order for us to grasp what is so powerfully in play in the formation of Chinese realism we must begin with Lu Xun. It locates Lu Xun, and especially his True Story of Ah Q, within the much broader scope of what it refers to as modern eidaesthetics. The chapter provides an account for the unique constellation of texts and concepts arrayed in Lu Xuns work between 1920 and 1922. The first is Nietzsches Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the tensection prologue of which Lu Xun translated from German and published in June of 1920. The second element of this constellation is the term type which Lu Xun is the first in print to introduce into China in an essay entitled After Translating The Worker Shevyrev.&t; The third is Lu Xuns The True Story of Ah Q, which was published in the Morning Gazette.

Keywords: Chinese Marxists; Chinese realism; Lu Xuns literary works.; modern eidaesthetics
