People's Daily Commemorates Late Writer Lu XunThe People's Daily, the leading newspaper in China, gave a full page Tuesday to commemorate the 120th birth anniversary of Lu Xun, a great writer and thinker in contemporary Chinese history.
Lu Xun (1881-1936), a native of Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province in east China, is considered by many to be the father of modern Chinese literature and the foremost representative of the nation's conscience.
Lu Xun was well known for expressing sharp opinions in his short but forceful essays.
The People's Daily published several articles discussing the spirit of Lu Xun and his promising contribution to the future of the Chinese nation.
Lin Fei, a researcher on modern literature, said in his article that Lu Xun was among the very few writers in the 20th century who could express extremely deep thought. Lin said that today's people should care for and upgrade the ethics of the whole nation, like Lu Xun.
In his article Xu Huaiqian refuted some negative comments on Lu Xun and his spirit. Xu cited what Lu Xun wrote to explain why some people were interested in blaming Lu Xun: chasing overnight fame.
Chen Shuyu detailed the everlasting value of Lu Xun's works in his article, saying that it was an important factor that makes Lu Xun immortal in Chinese history.
