- The China Review, Chinese novel studies, Chinese and Western literary exchange
The China Review is an English publication founded in Hong Kong in the late 19th century which covers literature, culture, history, society and other aspects of China. The paper explores the reviews and the research articles on Chinese novels published in The China Review so as to study the westerners’ comprehension and cognition of Chinese novels and Chinese literature at the end of the 19th century. What’s more, the role and significance of The China Review in disseminating Chinese novel to the English-speaking world in the history of Chinese and foreign literary exchange will be explored as well. Through textual analysis, the paper finds that the contributors of The China Review have conducted some in-depth discussions on the origin, classification, characterization, plot pattern and other aspects of Chinese novel. Although The China Review is not a specialized academic journal on Chinese literature, the research articles on the study of Chinese novels published by the periodical can be played as a supplementary role to the professional study in this field.
