Abstract

Fiction in the history of modern Chinese literature has been increasingly dominating literary production, ranking the top among all the genres. Contemporary Chinese fiction is thus a universally recognized major literary genre that has long been practiced in a glocalized Chinese context although it has been largely influenced by its Western counterpart. Thus it has been qualified enough to dialogue with both classical Chinese fiction as well as Western texts. In this introductory article eminent contemporary Chinese novelists are also discussed in a historical and critical way with regard to their relations with world literature.
