CHIN 4120 - Readings in Twentieth-Century Chinese Literature

This course provides both advanced language training and introduction to 20th-century Chinese literature. Students will read selected modern literary works in both the original language and English, including essays, fiction, poetry, and literary criticism from late 19th century to late 20th century. On the one hand, this course will focus on translation, language exercise, linguistic analysis, and discussion of the literary texts; on the other hand, it will introduce students to important authors, works, literary movements, schools, styles, as well as culture issues in Modern China. Class will be conducted in both Chinese and English.

Prerequisite: One CHIN 4000-level course, or placement by the Department of Modern & Classical Languages
