Un monde rêvé : la France dans la revue Xinyue (1928-1933)

Abstract : Xinyue is one of the three periodicals which played a leading role in the intellectual debates that took place in the 1920s and 1930s China. It was ideologically positioned between the Communist and the Nationalist parties,and aimed at a cultural synthesis of the Chinese tradition and Western civilization. The articles published dealt extensively with the English-speaking world, which was a consequence of the educational background of the main contributors; yet they also spoke about France, a constant reference for the Chinese intellectuals in the first half of the twentieth century. The writings relative to France, whether discussing literary, philosophical, political or social questions, conjured up a picture which was more a mirror reflecting China than an autonomous entity examined for its own sake.
