Essays in Honour of Marián Gálik


Raoul David Findeisen and Robert H. Gassmann

The almost 50 essays assembled here to mark the 65th birthday of the Slovak sinologist and comparatist Marián Gálik reflect the broad scope of his interests, starting with his study of modern Chinese literature and progressing to comparative literature. Gálik's career as a noted representative of the Prague School of Sinology has spanned forty years of prolific and active scholarship, focussing on the core concerns of cultural exchange between East Asian literatures, and between East and West. The contributions are arranged under the headings 'The Scholar and His Work', 'Chinese Tradition and the Asian Context', 'Mao Dun Studies', 'Modern Chinese Literature and Intellectual History' and 'Interliterary and Intercultural Networks'. Appended is a comprehensive list of Marián Gálik's many hundred contributions to the subject, many of them translated into Chinese and other languages.
