Spring Silkworms and Other Stories contains many of Mao Tun’s best allegorical tales which tell of the absurdities facing China’s early revolutionaries in their struggle to build a new China. Mercilessly flaying the sins of China’s old society, Mao Tun suffers and strives with the oppressed and exploited in a thunderous call to action. In the stirring days of early revolutionary China, Mao Tun, as an active participant in the struggle, knew every level and corner of Chinese society. Here, in this cross-section of his best short works, is a remarkable introduction to the awakening of the Chinese people.
