"Explores the writings of one western Zhejiang literary family whose works were emblematic of shifting attitudes towards women. Placing this family at the center of this study, the author illuminates the bridge between the late Qing and the previous period, the interplay of genres during the family's lifetimes, and the interaction of Shanghai publishing with other regions"-- Provided by publisher
