Abstract

This study looks at the school of revolutionary children’s literature in China, which emerged after the establishment of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1921 and flourished in the 1930s. The article first briefly examines the historical background and the intellectual context from which the revolutionary ideas stemmed and then analyzes some examples. Most of these texts contain a social analysis which is influenced by Marxism and aligned with the ideology of the CCP.
