Problems of Teaching Chinese Literature in a Comparative Literature Program.
Wivell, Charles J.
Sinologists concerned with methods of teaching literature are exposed to an interpretive and structural approach to the field. Problems encountered in translating the Chinese short story into English are illustrated by several examples. A method of analysis of the thematic structure of a story is examined on three levels: (1) overt plot and theme structure, (2) patterns of literary allusions integral to the plot, and (3) less obvious patterns of verbal imagery and action related to the specific theme of a particular story.
