Dulu Wang is considered one of the five greatest wuxia (which literally means "martial hero") fiction writers of the Northern School in the Republican. He was less interested in writing about ruthless killings; instead he focused on his characters' development, their emotions, friendship, and passions. Wang had great sympathy for women who suffered cruel oppression by the society and its feudal system, and his novels featured many strong female characters, warriors, and heroines. Most of his stories featured tragic endings. His perfect combination of chivalry, romance and tragedy in his novels have thrilled many critics and readers and this style have influenced many authors.
During 1925-1949 Wang published more 90 novels and thousands of articles and poems.
This book, Sword Spirit, Pearl Light, is Volume 3 of Wang's Crane-Iron Pentalogy and was published in 1939 and edited and modified by Hong Wang in 2020.
More Wang's books will be published in the Collected Works of Dulu Wang series.

wang dulu, despite being dismissed as a nonserious retrograde writer by leftist literary historians for several decades, was an aspiring cosmopolitan, who was sensitive to the resonance between the so-called progressive new ideas and certain existing elements of china's composite, heterogeneous tradition. rather than resist the drastic social changes and shifting values occurring in his time, he creatively revised the narrative conventions about chivalrous women in china's longstanding tradition of fantasy literature, thus making tradition relevant for the times. this work also rendered western-imported ideas about female independence, profession, and mobility familiar and palatable to ordinary urban readers. his work instantiates the synthesis of a quintessential national art form-the martial arts fantasy-and transnational ideas of women's liberation.
