by Associate Professor Chin Kwee Nyet.

Cao Yu and Lao She were two contemporaneous stalwarts in the history of modern Chinese literature. Between them, they wrote many seminal works including Thunderstorm, Sunrise, The Wilderness, Teahouse, Camel Xiangzi, and Four Generations Under One Roof.

Associate Professor Chin Kwee Nyet, Assistant Director of the Centre for Language Studies at the Arts and Social Science Faculty, National University of Singapore, dwells into the works, creative philosophy and background influences of the two literary masters and the relevance of their works in the 21st century.
