Sample text

Know two beans about contemporary Chinese literature. It would even be safe to say, at this early point, that we reject it out of hand. Earlier I tried to read a contemporary novel that everyone I've met has praised for its sheer quality, its boldness and sophistication. I had to put it down. To me it read like fiction from Jack and Jill; it had that pre-teen, overexplaining tone. The nonfiction I read seemed much better. Contemporary Chinese fiction, in both subject matter and tone, is an acquired taste (which I have since acquired), and one that requires, as does ours, an historical, cultural, and theoretical framework, outside of which it can scarcely be enjoyedand within which it certainly can.

Only later will we begin to understand how poignant are the unstated goals of many writers: to have their work known outside China, published just as they wrote it, and judged on its literary merits alone. The Chinese Writers Associations do not pretend to be communities of artists, or craft guilds, or unions. There is no hypocrisy here. The state established them to organize, subsidize, and to some extent control the people who will serve China's goals by writing. Page 22 Every short story in China, every novel, play, or movie, and every poem, has a clear purpose, which is to serve the goal of modernization.

That same year the state sentenced two leaders of the free-speech movement to prison, where they are now. "Scar literature," or "the literature of the wounded," which described some of the sufferings of the Cultural Revolution, has already come and gone; it was too much, too fast. Two years ago the state eliminated a rash of unofficial literary magazines. One year ago, the state banned Bai Hua's film Bitter Love and subjected it and him to protracted, if pro forma, public criticism. But most writers are more free now to write, speak, and travel than they have ever been in their lives.
