Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book Patchwork presents preface of both the essays namely; Four Old Essays and This Also Collection. Four Old Essays gathers together four of author's early essays. The first of these was published in A Collection of Essays Commemorating the Twentieth Anniversary of the Establishment of the Kaiming Bookshop; the second and third in the journal Literary Criticism; and the fourth in Collected Literary Research both these journals being produced by the Institute of Literary Research of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Mr Li Guoqiang prevailed upon me to compile a collection of my essays for him to publish. It was more appropriate to regard this present book This Also Collection as a token of the good intentions of these two friends, then, rather than as the fruits of my own labours.

Keywords: Collected Literary Research; Four Old Essays; Literary Criticism; Mr Li Guoqiang; This Also Collection
