Summary:The present volume of Critical Studies is a collection of selected
essays on the topic of feminism and femininity in Chinese literature.
Although feminism has been a hot topic in Chinese literary circles in
recent years, this remarkable collection represents one of the first
of its kind to be published in English. The essays have been written
by well-known scholars and feminists including Kang-I Sun Chang of
Yale University, and Li Ziyun, a writer and feminist in Shanghai,
China. The essays are inter - and multi-disciplinary, covering
several historical periods in poetry and fiction (from the Ming-Qing
periods to the twentieth century). In particular, the development of
women’s writing in the New Period (post-1976) is examined in depth.
The articles thus offer the reader a composite and broad perspective
of feminism and the treatment of the female in Chinese literature. As
this remarkable new collection attests, the voices of women in China
have begun calling out loudly, in ways that challenge prevalent views
about the Chinese female persona.
