Almost actually through the intermediary of Lou Shiyi 楼适夷, a senior literary editor, creator, translator, and poet in Beijing, and the elder cousin of Lou Guohua, the Trotskyists’ main publisher in Hong Kong. Forty years ago, I mentioned these issues with Wang Fanxi, whose guide on Mao, written in exile in Macau between 1961 and 1964, had appeared in 1973, in a limited edition printed in Hong Kong by Wang’s comrade Lou Guohua. In the e-book, Wang had pointed out the mistranslation and analysed its penalties, both for ‘Mao Zedong thought’ and for Chinese tradition underneath the Communists. Wang’s book was practically samizdat and had little or no influence on public opinion on the time, although it has turn out to be somewhat better recognized lately, since its republication in Hong Kong and Taipei in 2003.At the time, Hu Qiaomu identified that wenxue didn't properly convey Lenin’s meaning, and instructed his staff to use other words as an alternative, including yanlun 言论, ‘speeches, expressions of political opinion’, and zhuzuo 著作, or zuopin 作品, ‘works, writings’. However, this modification was simpler mentioned than carried out, provided that Mao had borrowed the time period from the uncorrected translation of Lenin’s essay and cited Lenin as his authority. If the error were publicly uncovered, the efforts and sacrifice of generations of Chinese writers would (in Nagahori’s words) ‘be set at nought’ and Mao’s own status can be broken. So would Hu’s, for he had served as Mao’s secretary in Yan’an in 1942 and had edited the Talks for publication in 1943, as well as serving on the group that printed Mao’s Selected Works between 1951 and 1960.He could have examine them in the Shanghai press, and they were nearly certainly a subject of dialogue at the time within the League of Left-Wing Writers, where Lu Xun was in shut contact with properly-knowledgeable Party members. He must even have known that Mao Zedong was primarily answerable for what went on within the Chinese Soviet. His independence from the Party line additionally prolonged, at occasions, to politics.In a chapter in his book titled ‘Literary Policy and Literary Creation’, Wang Fanxi had defined at size the varied meanings of the word ‘literature’ in European thought, and distinguished between a broad and a slim definition of it. Hu Qiaomu was, based on Nagahori, familiar with Wang’s argument, and satisfied by it. Wang’s rationalization was notably important in a ‘Marxist’ culture like China’s, obsessive about textual exegesis and the need to discover help in ‘classical’ authority for any opinion.Our Webpage In 1986, in the annotation to the Talks in Mao Zedong zhuzuo xuandu (‘Selected Readings from Mao Zedong’s Works’), printed by People’s Press, the correction was famous, but without further explanation of its significance. The same happened in the annotation to the Talks within the second version of Mao’s Selected Works, revealed in 1991, the place the reader was referred to the brand new translation of Lenin’s Works. Nagahori points out that only a particularly astute and conscientious reader would realise the implications of the change for Mao’s argument.The partial cowl-up was apparently aimed toward defending Mao’s good name. One of Nagahori’s most attention-grabbing discoveries – Nagahori poses it as a hypothesis, however it has a robust ring of truth – is the obvious source of the correction of the mistranslation of the word Литература in Lenin’s essay. The preparation of the second version of Lenin’s Works in Chinese translation started in the early Nineteen Eighties, underneath the path of Hu Qiaomu 胡乔木, the Marxist thinker and politician.
