The Hypothetical Mandarin Sympathy, modernity, and Chinese Pain

Eric Hayot

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Uniquely interdisciplinary-draws on cultural studies, Asian studies, American studies, and medical history to provide a distinct cultural history of China's relation to the West. Unites a series of topics that had until now not been understood as cohesive, providing a new direction for future studies in Chinese, comparative, and Euro-American literature as well as modernism. Features fourteen rare, vivid images that illustrate the West's curious fascination with the Chinese body.
