About the Book
Unlucky Star is a collection of 31 essays written by Lu Xun in 1925. Unlucky Star uses the Chinese fortune teller's views on fortune and misfortune, which posit that it's common for commoners to suffer misfortune, as an allegory for the dark reality of the time. Unlucky Star tactfully exposes Lu Xun's resentment and resistance toward traditional Chinese society.
