The Chinese Prose Poem lives up to its promise as a scholarly reference and reader’s companion to some of Lu Xun’s most challenging and enigmatic work.” – MCLC

Cambria Press congratulates Professor Nicholas A. Kaldis (Binghamton University (SUNY)) on the outstanding review of his book The Chinese Prose Poem: A Study of Lu Xun’s Wild Grass (Yecao) in the journal MCLC, which states that “the book’s substantial sixty-page bibliography [is] a feat of compilation that stands as a scholarly resource in and of itself. Clearly, The Chinese Prose Poem is not aimed at the casual reader; but for that matter, neither was Yecao,” further adding that the “lives up to its promise as a scholarly reference and reader’s companion to some of Lu Xun’s most challenging and enigmatic work. Of equal importance, the book reaffirms the value of the close reading of literature, implicitly arguing, along with Lu Xun, that serious literature does matter and might change its readers for the better, given that those readers are willing to put in the effort of close, thoughtful analysis and reflection.”
