Summary
The bold and extraordinary essays in this volume all beautifully translated by sinologist Mabel Lee include Gao's Nobel Lecture ("The Case for Literature"), "Literature as Testimony: The Search for Truth," "Cold Literature," "Literature and Metaphysics: About Soul Mountain," and "The Necessity of Loneliness," as well as other essays. These essays embody an argument for literature as a universal human endeavor rather than one defined and limited by national boundaries. Gao believes in the need for the writer to stand apart from collective movements, regardless of whether these are engineered by political parties or driven by economic or other forces not related to literature. This collection presents Gao's innovative ideas on aesthetics, and it constitutes the very kernel of his thinking on literary creation
