As one of China's most famous contemporary writers, Wang Anyi enjoys a high reputation abroad. Her most recognized work is Song of Everlasting Sorrow, which describes a woman's life experience in Shanghai. A professor at Harvard once praised her as a"writer belonging to Shanghai." The study of the spread of Wang Anyi's novels in western counties is beneficial to examine contemporary Shanghai-style literature and even the practical problems of cross-cultural communication of Chinese literature, further promoting Chinese literature to the world.
