Example text

Ontology investigates the meaning of existence (understood as an activity involving the interpretive creation of the world, not its apprehension as a pure object). Epistemology and axiology are extensions of ontology and apprehend the meaning of existence from both its objective and subjective aspects. Erected upon the philosophical base of subjectivity, the new literary theory viewed literary activity as a mode of free spiritual existence, not as a reflection of the real world. Thus, literary existence transcends reality; it is a comprehension of the meaning of existence (meaning that transcends reality).

Chinese literary critics have gradually become aware that their spiritual lords of this century have all been created by foreigners—some by Germans and some by Russians. It is the same for literary theorists, most of whose lords have been created by Germans and Russians, some by the 4 | ZAIFU LIU French and Americans. This situation has resulted in a lack of originality in theory or, as some would say, the lack of a primal impetus to formulate theory. Consequently, the issues discussed by Chinese theorists have often already been discussed elsewhere, and therefore they seem repetitive or rehashed.

In lieu of introducing Chinese literature since the late 1980s according to the conventional geopolitical boundaries and ideological closures, I propose to describe it as a discursive space of overlapping cultures and shared imaginary resources. By drawing examples from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and overseas communities, I will chart four coordinates that best delineate the topography of this space. To begin with, one of the most fascinating phenomena in Chinese literature since the 1980s has been the radicalization of traditional realist discourse.
