A history of the translation, transmission and interpretation of modernist Russian literature in China during the first half of the 20th century, this book views modern Chinese literary culture from an original and revealing perspective. It is the first English-language study of the subject to draw on sources in both Russian and Chinese, and it also shows the crucial role of English, German and Japanese translations in mediating knowledge of Russian literature in China.
