APPROACHING HISTORY

The Fictional Worlds of Ha Jin and Yan Geling

GUO RONG


This book starts with the reading of Ha Jin’s and Yan Geling’s literary works and ends by seeking a sense of history about China and its past. It draws on Aristotle’s distinction between poetry and history, arguing that literary texts may represent the gaps left by the master narratives of the real world. The humanism and sympathy towards the dispossessed individuals are also the main concerns of this study of fiction, history and narrative in theory and practice.

Rong Guo teaches English at China University of Mining & Technology, Beijing. She translated from English to Chinese Momme Brodersen’s Walter Benjamin: A Biography and J. Hillis Miller’s An Innocent Abroad: Lectures in China, and her main interests are postcolonial theories, diasporic studies and overseas Chinese literature.
