Erich Auerbach and Qian Zhongshu’s Inspirations as Entry Point

(Abstract)

 

Wu Fusheng

 

In the study of comparative literature, Erich Auerbach and Qian Zhongshu both advocate a thorough examination of a certain literary phenomena through actual and extendable textual details as the starting point. An indepth discussion of their theories, practices and a few cases in their representative works Mimesis and Limited Views (Guan zhui bian) will provide reference for the study of comparative literature in the future.
