A major work by a towering figure in Twentieth Century Chinese literature, "Ward Four" (Disi Bingshi) intimately reveals the frailties and strengths of the human spirit and the will to survive. Set in a hospital in rural China during World War II, it provides a haunting window into the isolation and displacement faced by ordinary citizens. Ba Jin’s hospital ward is a dark corner where life and death intersect and the absurd is transformed into the comic. Amid the uncertainties of war are the foundations and strength of will during one of the darkest periods of Chinese history. Ba Jin's tale is an allegory for China in the 20th Century and one of his greatest works.Ba Jin (1904-2005) is widely considered one of China's greatest literary figures whose work has been translated into dozens of languages around the world.
