Synopsis:

China’s profound influence on the avant-garde in the 20th century was nowhere more apparent than in the work of Ezra Pound, Bertolt Brecht, and the writers associated with the Parisian literary journal Tel quel. Chinese Dreams explores the complex, intricate relationship between various Chinas” as texts and the nation/culture known simply as China” their context within the work of these writers. Eric Hayot calls into question the very means of representing otherness in the history of the West and ultimately asks if it might be possible to attend to the political meaning of imagining the other, while still enjoying the pleasures and possibilities of such dreaming. The latest edition of this critically acclaimed book includes a new preface by the author.

Lucid and accessible . . . an important contribution to the field of East-West comparative studies, Asian studies, and modernism.”
Comparative Literature Studies

Instead of trying to decipher the indecipherable China’ in Western literary texts and critical discourses, Hayot chose to show us why and how China’ has remained, and will probably always be, an enchanting, ever-elusive dream. His approach is nuanced and refreshing, his analysis rigorous and illuminating.”
Michelle Yeh, University of California, Davis

From the Inside Flap: The intricacies of the relationship between various written "Chinas"--as texts--and the nation/culture known simply as "China"--their context--are profoundly complex; Hayot's book embraces a unique form of scholarship that gives those intricacies a voice. As it traces the presence of these different "Chinas" through the work of these writers, Chinese Dreams explores the effect of the West's use of China or Chinese ideas as a way of opening up new ways of reading, writing, and thinking, and calls into question the very means of representing otherness in the history of the West. Chinese Dreams ultimately asks if it might be possible to attend to the political meaning of imagining the other, while still enjoying the pleasures and possibilities of such dreaming.
