Like artists, important writers defy unequivocal interpretations. Gao Xingjian, winner of the Nobel Prize in literature, is a cosmopolitan writer, deeply rooted in the Chinese past while influenced by paragons of Western modernity. The present volume brings together for the first time a collection of essays on the themes of freedom and fate in the creative works of Gao Xingjian.
