The Politics of Cultural Capital: China's Quest for a Nobel Prize in Literature (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.2481

In the 1980s China?s politicians, writers, and academics began to raise an increasingly urgent question: why had a Chinese writer never won a Nobel prize for literature? Promoted to the level of official policy issue and national complex, Nobel anxiety generated articles, conferences, and official delegations to Sweden. Exiled writer Gao Xingjian?s win in 2000 failed to satisfactorily end the matter, and the controversy surrounding the Nobel committee?s choice has continued to simmer.

Julia Lovell?s comprehensive study of China?s obsession spans the twentieth century and taps directly into the key themes of modern Chinese culture: national identity, international status, and the relationship between intellectuals and politics. Making use of extensive original research, including interviews with leading contemporary Chinese authors and critics, Lovell provides a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of an issue that cuts to the heart of modern and contemporary Chinese thought and culture. It will be essential reading for scholars of modern Chinese literature and culture, globalization, post-colonialism, and comparative and world literature.
