A collection of English translations of major stories of the Chinese author Lu Xun.
When I was young I, too, had many dreams. Most of them came to be forgotten, but I see nothing in this to regret. For although recalling the past may make you happy, it may sometimes also make you lonely and there is no point in clinging in spirit to lonely bygone days. However, my trouble is that I cannot forget completely and these stories have resulted from what I have been unable to erase from my memory. . . .
