This story was written in 1921, and is set in the China of 1911, the period of the old-democratic revolution. It concerns the tragedy of Ah Q, a farm laborer who suffers a lifetime of humiliation and persecution, dreams of revolution, and ends up on the execution ground. The story colorfully reflects the rural conditions in semi-feudal and semi-colonial China, and brings to life the time’s sharp class contradictions and the peasant masses’ demand for revolution. Its simplicity and directness of style, and the beauty of Lu Xun’s language, makes The True Story of Ah Q a masterpiece. With b&w illustrations.
