About the Author

David Der-wei Wang is Edward C. Henderson Professor of Chinese Literature and Comparative Literature, Harvard University, and Director of the CCK Foundation Inter-University Center for Sinological Studies.


Wang's is a daring enterprise...Wang should be applauded for a work compiled to introduce English readers to the habits of Chinese writers and readers...With 161 chapters by more than 140 writers, A New Literary History takes a near-encyclopedic approach to the study of Literary China, one that embraces not only the People's Republic (including Hong Kong) and Taiwan, but also Sinophone and Anglophone writers overseas.--Geremie Barme"New York Review of Books" (11/23/2017)
This monumental anthology on modern Chinese literature is so essential...This book is meant for a broad reading public... It becomes clear reading this book that one can trace the larger history of China itself across the twentieth century by looking at its literature and its writers...A New Literary History offers a potent glimpse into China, as it was and as it is...In this meticulously edited and selected anthology, there really is something for everyone.--Eleanor Goodman"Los Angeles Review of Books" (10/09/2017)
A New Literary History of Modern China stands far apart from the standard state-of-the-field collection. The publication of this book, with its range and breadth of scholarship, is an event without precedent in the field of modern Chinese literary studies. Some of the essays read like polished vignettes while some are whimsical, others build swiftly to a punchy thesis, and others again offer distilled wisdom on a crucial topic. The brevity of the essays holds the reader's attention at a keen pitch--and more importantly incites more reading. A monumental volume.--Margaret Hillenbrand, University of Oxford
