Mo Yan wins Nobel Prize in Literature

A villager’s ‘Chinese dreams’

What is the brightest event in China in 2012?

Mo Yan, a Chinese writer born in Gaomi city in east China’s Shandong province, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in October 2012. The low-profile storyteller who loves dumplings gained great popularity in Sweden thanks to his Nobel win.

There is no doubt that certain foreign scholars will shift their attention to the works of Chinese writers. In fact, Mo had long been famous abroad due to the adaptation of his Red Sorghum Clan and other novels, but his works had not gained global popularity until they were translated by first-class translators.

China has stressed cultural consciousness, self-confidence, and self-reliance, and made great efforts to promote its cultural industry in recent years. Mo’s Nobel win is refreshing and encouraging, but also shows that lack of top translators is a major bottleneck for the overseas publicity of Chinese culture.
