About This Book
The True Story of Ah Q
Ah Q Zhengzhuan, or The True Story of Ah Q, is a long short fiction by Lu Xun, first published between December 1921 and February 1922.
The piece is held to be a masterpiece of modern Chinese literature, and one of Lu Xun's most important works; it is certainly his most famous.
The story traces the adventures of Ah Q, a lowly educated man with no definite work from the peasant class, who is famous for "spiritual victories", Lu Xun's euphemism for self-talk and self-deception even when faced with extreme defeat or humiliation. A bully of the less fortunate but fearful of those who are above him in rank, strength or power, Lu Xun exposes Ah Q's extreme faults as symptomatic to the Chinese race of his time. The ending of the piece - where Ah Q is carted to execution for a lowly crime - is equally poignant and satirical.
A Madman's Diary
The Madman's Diary is an attempt by Lu Xun to describe the effects of Confucianism upon the Chinese people. His uses an analogy of cannibalism to describe the way Confucianism eats away at the individual.
