About the Book
Fringed Literature is a collection of 61 essays written by Lu Xun in 1934 as short reviews for Free Talk, a supplement of the Shanghai News. Because the articles printed in Free Talk were always bordered with a fringed decoration, Lin Mo satirized them as fringed literature. The collection is thusly titled Fringed Literature, a wonderful pun, no doubt.
