Summary (From the publisher):

A towering figure in the literary history of twentieth-century China, Lu Xun has exerted immense and continuous influence through his short stories, which remain today as powerful as they were first written. Echoes of these stories can still be heard in the fictional works from both sides of the Taiwan Strait in the eighties and nineties. This collection of short stories features a selection of 12 stories from Lu Xun's Call to Arms and Wandering, including "The New-Year Sacrifice," "A Madman's Diary," "Kong Yiji," "Medicine," together with "Forging the Swords" from the collection Old Tales Retold. This bilingual edition also carries an introduction by Professor David Pollard.
