This paper examines the book, "The Execution of Mayor Yin and Other Stories from the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution", by Chen Jo-hsi, a collection of short stories that show what life was like in China during the Cultural Revolution, which was created and sponsored by Chairman Mao Tse-tung. Specifically, it analyzes the author's ideas in the book and looks at how she writes of her experiences under Chinese rule and hopes to share those experiences with her readers so they understand what the Chinese people have endured under Communism.
From the Paper:"From the first story, it is clear the author does not agree with the Communist rule in China, and this is one of the main ideas she carries through the book. She calls the young Red Guard "arrogant" and this is her position all through the book. The Communists and the people that support them, especially the youthful Red Guards, are arrogant and self-righteous, and they believe in the Communist Party at the expense of everything else, even their own family. People are afraid of the Guard, and they do not trust them, which the author shows is very wise by the execution of Mayor Yin, and many other happenings in the book. These people are not to be trusted. While the Red Guard were supposed to follow the teachings of Chairman Mao, and further the Cultural Revolution, they often furthered their own goals rather than the goals of the party."
