Lu Xun (1881–1936) is often regarded as the father of modern Chinese literature. Born in Shàoxīng in Zhèjiāng province and buried in Shànghǎi, Lu Xun lived in Běijīng for over a decade. As a writer, Lu Xun, who first trained in medicine, articulated a deep yearning for reform by mercilessly exposing the foibles of the Chinese character in such tales as Medicine and Diary of a Madman . The exhibits range from photos and manuscripts to personal effects.
