Zweig on the Chinese Screen and Stage

(p.123) Outlook
China's Stefan Zweig

Arnhilt Johanna Hoefle

University of Hawai'i Press

In March 2005, a film adaptation of Zweig’s Letter from an Unknown Woman by the accomplished actress and director Xu Jinglei was released in China. In fall 2013 the same novella by Zweig was adapted into an experimental play by the acclaimed avant-garde dramatist Meng Jinghui. To conclude the book, this outlook introduces these two works as examples of new and creative practices of cultural transfer. They testify to the continuity of Zweig’s success in China until today and show how discourses on the “Zweig-style female figures” have become an established site where notions of femininity are debated, reflecting and critically commenting on the new dynamics and pressures on Chinese society in the new millennium.
