Celebrated Chinese writer Zhang Wei, whose novel You Are on the Plateau won China’s prestigious Mao Dun Prize for Literature in 2011, is also a powerful short story writer. His imaginative power, ability to skillfully craft a story, and picturesque use of language are rarely found in other writers. Zhang Wei is well known in China as a master of fiction. In this volume, we have Chu Dongwei’s carefully translated story “A Bitter Debate in a Dream” to go with the Chinese original by Zhang Wei and a written seminar consisting of three commentaries and one scholarly essay. In the three commentaries, Canadian author Fraser Sutherland’s “A Lesson of Sorts: a Commentary on ‘A Bitter Debate in a Dream,’” O. Henry Prize winner Caitlin Horrocks’ “A Meaningful Dream Scene: on Zhang Wei’s ‘A Bitter Debate in a Dream,’” and writing professor Craig Hulst’s “Practical and Philosophical Issues: Humans and Their Dogs: a Commentary on Zhang Wei’s ‘A Bitter Debate in a Dream,” and Dr. Brian Cope’s essay “Through Bitterness Something Ecological Grows: Zhang Wei’s Ecological Allegory,” you will find interesting angles from which the writers and scholars approach the story.
