This chapter discusses the first writings of Fou Lei, which were essays that praised and presented Liu Haisu as a heroic but misunderstood figure. One of his first essays was published in L'Art, and also appeared in Masterpieces in World Art. Soon, Fou Lei began writing translations and essays on international literary and art-world news, and began teaching art history and theory at the Shanghai Art College. However, after the death of his mother, Fou Lei resigned from the art college and began his role as a translator of French literature. It is noted that Lei approached the craft of translation with the eye of an artist, and was sensitive to voice and narrative.

Keywords:   first writings, Liu Haisu, translations, essays, art world, Shanghai, French literature
