"Lies written in ink cannot erase facts written in blood." Lu Xun wrote this after a massacre of students in 1919, and it was just as accurate 70 years later. This is a writer who deserves your attention. This 4-volume set doesn't contain everything he wrote, but it is a good starting point. If you have any interest in China and Chinese history, Lu Xun is a must read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0898756294, Paperback)

This is volume two of a four volume set.

This selection of Lu Hsun's works includes stories, prose poems, reminiscences, polemical writing and essays dealing with many aspects of life and letters. It compromises four volumes, the last three of which contain selected essays.

All the essays in this volume were written between 1918 and 1927, the period of the May the Fourth Movement and the First Revolutionary War (1924-1927). They show how Lu Hsun battled during these years and the extent of his contribution to the democratic revolution.

Lu Hsun (1881-1936), chief commander of China's modern cultural revolution, was not only a great thinker and political commentator but the founder of modern Chinese literature.
