ON THE TRANSFORMATION OF OSCAR WILDE’S SALOME IN MODERN CHINESE FICTION
Languages of publication
The purpose of this paper is to analyse the transformation of Oscar Wilde’s Salome in modern Chinese fiction. Some writers borrowed something, either little or much, from Salome whose influence has extended from drama creation to fiction creation. Thus, Modernism in their sense equates more or less to Modengism or Fashionism and gives forth a commercial breath. As a factor, the influence of the Aesthetic and Decadent movement is often taken into a larger movement of Romanticism.1 Modengzhuy 摩登主义 Modengism is a Chinese term for the Aesthetic and Decadent literary movement in the new urban culture mainly in China in the years 1930 – 1945.
