Product Description

This book explores the affinity between literature and people, with

special attention given to that between Chinese literature and western

literature in the 20th century, and underscores the role played by

translation therein as well. Professor Wang Zuoliang was pioneering

in bringing forth the concept of “affinity” in talking about interactions

between literature and people, which has won great compliment from

both critics and common readers in China and abroad. As he points out,

“momentous changes often occur when a foreign literature satisfies a

sore need of an indigenous literature, thus developing a strong affinity.”
