Comparative Poetics between China and the West (Book Review)

In 1979, Qian Zhongshu’s Guanzhui Bian (管锥编) was firstly published by Zhonghua Book Company, which was universally reputed as the commencement of revival of comparative literature in China. From that time on, the study of Chinese comparative literature had been enjoying 40 years of development. During this process, scholars from different fields and with different training experiences made their own contributions to this burgeoning discipline in many ways. The academic world witnessed changes from spontaneous, random researches to self-conscious, systematic studies in this area, from an arbitrary approach affiliated to other disciplines in literature to an independent discipline equipped with its own methodology and discourse system.
