  •  Zhongqiang Wang    


What is “Chinese Narratology”? How can “Chinese narrative” become a systematic “study”? Questions of this kind have been raised repeatedly in the field of Chinese narrative research. Many attempts have been made to answer them by various scholars in recent years. Among them, Xiuyan Fu’s Chinese Narratologies is a prominent example, originally published in Chinese in 2015 (Peking University Press) with an English translation by Weisheng Tang following in 2020 (Springer). Fu has a well-established expertise in narratology and Chinese literature and Chinese Narratologies is the latest of a significant number of influential works in the field.
