Description - The Gate of Darkness by Hsia Tsi-An

First published in 1968, this volume of essays, posthumously edited by the author's brother Professor Chih-tsing Hsia (a prominent Columbia University professor of Chinese literature), focuses on Chinese literary criticism relating to the work of leftist Chinese writers, including Lu Hsun (Lu Xun), Chiang Kuang-tz'u, the "Five Martyrs," and Chu Ch'iu-po, who were sympathetic to the ideals of the pre-1949 Chinese communist party. As one of the few foundational texts to provide a critical overview of the aesthetics and politics of China's leftist literary movement, The Gate of Darkness examines the conflicting dilemmas between leftist authors' own ideals and the strict ideological frameworks imposed by the propaganda policies of the Chinese communist party in the early twentieth century.
