Each of the nine papers in this volume deals with some aspect of the literary interface between China and the West, or of closely related internal developments in Chinese literature: the early 20th-century poet Xu Yunuo, Zhang Xianliang's fiction, Mao Dun's interest in the Dutch playwright Speenhoff, Lu Xun and Frederik van Eeden, Li He's poetry in the early post-Mao period, affinities between Ulysses and early 1930s Chinese fiction, the poetry of Duoduo, Dutch loan-words and loan-translations in modern Chinese, and Wallace Stevens in Chinese translation. The authors - all former students of Erik Zürcher - have approached this Festschift in the spirit of Zürcher's own interest in cultural interaction, bringing to it a wealth of information on hitherto little-studied aspects of modern Chinese culture. The result is a many-sided forum which will be of interest not only to sinologists but to anyone interested in comparative literature, modern world literature, or the processes of literary and linguistic interchange. 0.0.
