Analysis of Lu Xun and His Works

Analysis of Lu Xun and His Works

The essay should answer the question in the prompt I posted about how the author criticized the traditional view of “Enlightenment”. Although in the prompt there are three authors given, only Chinese author Lu Xun’s work should be used to analyze. I attached Lu Xun’s work, but in the file attached, please only use the passages “Preface to the first collection of short stories, ‘Call to Arms”, “A madman’s diary”, and “My Old Home”. Other passages are not included, even though they appear in the file. The essay should be about how Lu Xun criticized the traditional thought of enlightenment with the textual references from his work. The essay should have a clear thesis in the introduction, which supporting paragraphs in the body with clear points, and a logical conclusion. You can relate to the political and historical events in China at that time (e.g. New Culture Movement) to give extra support. But do not quote any outside sources, Lu Xun’s work is the only source to support the analysis. So if you want to relate to the historical and political-cultural events in China, use them as common knowledge. Do not spend too many words on that. In addition, there should be a certain level of a quotation from Lu Xun’s work as textual support of the ideas and point, but do not quote too much so there’s enough space for analysis.
There are some certain points you need to know in order to better write the essay. First is that Lu Xun is not only against the traditional view of enlightenment about reason over self-ignorance, which you can relate to the event that he gives up learning medicine in Japan and decide to become a literary writer as he described in the “preface”, but also he is against some Chinese traditional thoughts and cultures. You can search about this if you don’t know. But again, as I said, using this stuff as common knowledge and writing in the essay is ok, but DO NOT quote any stuff from outside journals or websites. In addition, the passage “My Old Home” is written from Lu Xun’s first-person point of view. The narrator is Lu Xun. So do not misunderstand and think that Lu Xun is criticizing the narrator. He is against the person in his hometown and therefore criticizes how traditional stuff about enlightenment is negatively affecting people.
