Sample text

15 The integration of Marxism with nationalism that characterizes Mao’s Marxism is conditioned by the historical task of revolution, with its radical reinvention of a “national culture” sundered from Confucian and other traditional values. Although this highly selective and contested “new national culture” may have served Mao’s revolutionary strategy of national autonomy and autarky in political, social, and economic terrains in the face of imperialist threats and containment, it did not achieve the goal of reproducing and legitimating the necessary social relations and structures as cultural and ideological foundations for social reconstruction or modernization in China.

Postmodernism and related theoretical discourses such as postcolonialism seem to be largely eschewed by the intellectual mainstream as newly imported Western theoretical shibboleths ill suited to Chinese situations. On the other hand, the appearance of a politically engaged “hybridity” that blends both neoconservative authoritarianism and radical strains reminiscent of Maoism highlights both intellectual disorientation and critical potency in the latest struggle to construct an ideological hegemony.

The chapter compares the Chinese avant-garde and some European avantgarde movements in terms of their different political, ideological, and aesthetic views and practices and then focuses on the work of Yu Hua, perhaps the most well known of the Chinese avant-gardists. ” In the 1990s, however, his writings underwent significant stylistic change as he gave up metafiction and adopted the mode of “plain” realism. My reading of Yu Hua’s writings shows the paradox of the Chinese avant-gardists in that they are aesthetically radical and subversive only in the realm of language and form but are politically disengaged.
