Cambria Press Book Review: “An example of how much can be achieved by combining careful scholarship with creative reading and inspired writing.” – CLEAR

Cambria Press congratulates Nicholas A. Kaldis on the glowing review of his book, The Chinese Prose Poem: A Study of Lu Xun’s Wild Grass (Yecao), in the journal CLEAR (Chinese Literature: Essays, Articles, Reviews).

Kaldis’s book was reviewed by the distinguished scholar Jon Eugene von Kowallis, who praised the book, stating that it is “a comprehensive, well-balanced study” and that “Kaldis’s analyses of many of the pieces are brilliant and insightful. His own prose style and argumentation are impeccable.”

Professor von Kowallis also asserted that:

As scholars, we have to be more than recorders of facts or appliers of methodologies. Kaldis’s book is an example of how much can be achieved by combining careful scholarship with creative reading and inspired writing. Students, scholars, and anyone who is curious to learn more about Lu Xun should turn to this superlative work for many years to come.

The Chinese Prose Poem is part of the Cambria Sinophone World Series, which has thrived under the leadership of world-renowned Sinologist Victor H. Mair (University of Pennsylvania).
