Historical Investigation from the Debate on “National Form” to “Zhao Shuli’s Direction”

(Abstract)

 

Niu Tingting

 

The Speech at the Forum on Literature and Art in Yan’an specifically refers to the direction of “popularization” as “service for workers, peasants and soldiers,” which breaks through the idea of taking new literature and art as “body” and taking folk form as “use,” and puts forward the requirement for the intellectuals who are engaged in the revolution to fully integrate with the masses of workers, peasants and soldiers through ideological and artistic transformation. On the other hand, from the context of the anti-Japanese base areas, the intellectuals translated the system design of the literature and art of workers, peasants and soldiersinto the folk literature movement with Zhao Shuli direction as the standard.
