The period treated in this study was the age of Taishō Democracy and post-May Fourth idealism; it was an age in which anything seemed possible. In 1919 none of the writers treated in this study, Chinese or Japanese, would have dared to imagine the bloody conflict between the two countries that lay ahead. Parallels, thematic and formal, emerged between such writers as Ding Ling and Hayashi Fumiko and between older more established writers such as Lu Xun and Arishima Takeo. More significantly, friendly exchanges developed between such sets of writers as Yu Dafu and Satō Haruo, Zhou Zuoren and Mushanokōji Saneatsu, and Tian Han and Tanizaki Jun'ichirō. At the epicenter of this complex web of interrelations stood the friendship between Uchiyama Kanzō and Lu Xun. Furthermore, ideological polarization and literary disengagement are discussed.

Keywords:   Ding Ling, Hayashi Fumiko, Lu Xun, Arishima Takeo, Yu Dafu, Satō Haruo, Zhou Zuoren, Mushanokōji Saneatsu, Tian Han, Tanizaki Jun'ichirō
