Editorial Reviews


Hanan does students of modern Chinese fiction a great favor by bringing these scholarly essays together in a single volume...Highly recommended.


Any scholarly writing by Patrick to be welcomed...sure to be worth our careful consideration.

(Robert E. Hegel Bulletin of the Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy 1900-01-00)

An important contribution to the fields of both premodern and modern Chinese fiction.

(Ying Wang China Review International 1900-01-00)

A significant contribution to scholarship not only on late imperial Chinese literature but also in the field of descriptive translation studies.

(Geraldine Schneider Rocky Mountain Review 1900-01-00)


These is a magnificent collection of one of the most distinguished scholars in classical Chinese fiction. Hanan's research is both impeccable and original, as it explores a cultural terrain seldom trodden by other scholars. In so doing Hanan has established the late Qing as the most crucial period of modern Chinese literary and cultural history. The essays contain not only gems of his most recent scholarly work but some groundbreaking findings: such as the original text and author of 'Qinxi xiantan,' the first Chinese translation of a Western novel. Written in his usual succinct style these essays are must reading for all students of Chinese literature.

(Leo Ou-fan Lee, Harvard University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong)
