Lu Xun: A Product of Shaoxing

Considered by many to be the father of modern Chinese literature and widely recognized as one of China’s best and most influential authors, Lu Xun was born on September 25, 1881 in Shaoxing of eastern China’s Zhejiang Province. His outlook and writing career were bound up with Shaoxing, a famous water town with a long and rich cultural history where Lu Xun spent his first 17 formative years. To mark the 140th anniversary of his birth, the Renwen Society presents a commemorative lecture on September 25 by Dr. Zhu Wenbin, Vice President of Zhejiang Yuexiu University of Foreign Languages in Shaoxing, Lu Xun’s hometown.
