    schema:description ""This collection provides a critical re-examination of the development and current status of comparative literature studies that engage the literary practices of both China and the West. It attempts to refashion literary methodologies and cultural theories in Chinese studies and to cut across disciplines, genders, and modernities. Eschewing conventional divisions, such as the study of literary influences and parallels, this volume shifts the emphasis from Chinese-Western comparativism to a critical re-reading of Chinese or China-related texts using a variety of new critical approaches. Essays that draw on literary history, comparative poetics, modernist aesthetics, feminist studies, gender theory, and postcolonial discourse exemplify how multifaceted approaches can enrich our understanding of this field. They cover a range of subjects, including the challenge of East-West comparative literature, the impact of literary theory on Sinological research, contemporary Chinese fiction and television drama, and the problem of translation."--Publisher's description."@en ;
