In questi celebri racconti, Lu Xun rielabora in chiave satirica i miti e le tradizioni della Cina, senza risparmiare neppure i grandi filosofi e intellettuali dellantichità come Confucio, Mozi e Laozi, dei quali mette alla berlina le debolezze e il distacco dalla realtà.La sua satira si propone di portare alla luce i difetti nazionali della società cinese che antecede l ...more

Ох, в такива дни така си обичам работата.

В тази книга има всичко: прословутата китайска непоколебимост и спокойствие, с което разказват страшните си, бунтарските си, разкъсващите си истории, още по-пословичната китайска мъдрост, интелигентно чувство за хумор, съпружески неволи без мелодрами, най-сетне! дълг и преданост, и обич.

П.П.: Другата седмица (мисля) на пазара от Изток-Запад.

Lu Xun è stato uno tra i maggiori scrittori cinesi della prima metà del secolo scorso; il suo essere contro l'impero e vicino alle posizioni comuniste l'ha prima reso un mito e poi un'icona di quelle che si venerano ma si sta bene attenti a non studiare troppo a fondo. In questi suoi racconti minori Xun riprende alcune leggende dell'antica Cina. Nell'amplissimo insieme di note aggiunte da Ivan Franceschini alla sua traduzione si possono scoprire quali sono le leggende originali e soprattutto i ...more

Una joyita que me encontré en los libros usados. Editado e impreso en China, por las "ediciones en lenguas extranjeras" para dar a conocer la obra de los pensadores nacionales al mundo entero, hasta el papel es una maravilla. Me gustaría saber cómo fue que llegó a México.

El texto retoma algunas leyendas e historias de la tradición China en sus diferentes regiones, para revalorarlas a la luz de la nueva época, la de la Revolución Cultural. En algunos casos el resultado es una crítica sutilmente

This was perhaps one of my favorite collections of Lu Xuns stories. In the first place, they are all told in a style reminiscent of The Thousand and One Nights, also because they involved traditional Chinese stories that I had never heard and lastly because Xun retells them in a perfect blend of reverence for the story as well as his always present cynicism of the society in which they developed. The stories themselves were also very intriguing because they all highlighted the interim between ...more

My edition is 1972 second edition published by the Foreign Language Press of Peking.
This is a collection of short stories with many references to old stories, gods and dynasties. Some are distinctly odd, probably because of the coded political messages which Lu Hsun seems to be giving in his tales.

These are reinterpretations of old Chinese myths as seen through the eyes of Lu Xun, one of China's great modern writers. I wish I knew more about the myths and heroes of Chinese legend; as I am reading this now I can glean certain facts but I can't appreciate these stories in real depth. However, I do enjoy the Chinese perspective, and the translation of this is quite good.

Fascinating to read, as I was only familiar with Lu Xun's political essays and modernist fiction -- his characteristic biting insight and passionate vehemence even more persuasive modulated into myth. Very good, lucid translation.

Трудно ми е да напиша ревю за тази книга поради две причини. Първо, прочетох я в превод, и второ, книгата е твърде далеч от познаните ми литературни традиции. Сигурно при четенето не съм отдал на книгата вниманието, което заслужава. Но тя пък събуди у мен любопитство да експериментирам още с китайска литература.
Книгата се състои от осем разказа, писани в началото на 20 век. Бих определил жанра като културна сатира. С това имам предвид, че авторът осмива с тве традиции от китайската култура от

A difficult to rate collection, but at the end of the day, it got snickers out of me and some thoughtful pauses, so it did its job!

Admittedly, without a vague familiarity with some classic Chinese literature -- boy howdy is it easy to get lost. Loads of times I felt like I was not in on the joke 100%. Flipside, there is something delightfully universal about:

* A bureaucrat staring up between the legs of the (very naked) creator goddess, to talk about decency laws.

* A philosopher bringing a

If you've never read Lu Xun, then you are lame. He's often called China's first real "modern" author or whatever that means, but he has that peculiar, hilarious genius for making fun of pretty much everyone around him that transcends any stupid lit-crit pigeonholing. In fact, he screams against it. The irony is is that he often evinces his genius through folksy retellings of old tales. Hence the title of this collection.
The stories are funny and biting. Chang'e goes to the moon because she's

Seminal work in Chinese modernist literature. Some consider it to be his finest.
