About the Work

On the occasion of a public talk in 1956, the Chinese literary theorist Zhou Yang proclaimed that regarding the implementation and promotion of Socialist Realism, one “does not deliberate its definition. I feel that we do not need to stress it regardless of whether the definition has its fault onot.” His proposition gave an essential push towards the wide spread, interpretation and internalization of socialist realism among the Chinese population, and helped legitimize the party’s ideological hijacking of socialist realism. In his remarks, his repeated utterances of “Do Not, Leave it Alone and Do Not Stress” still lurks in the foundation for the acquiring, understanding, narratives of phenomena and concepts in today’s cultural field in China.
