TRAN VAN TRONG

Tóm tắt


Short stories written in quốc ngữ (lit. national language script), or Romanised characters to record the Vietnamese language, in Nam Bộ, or Cochinchina, were started late in the 19th, then encountered an interruption and were continuously developed afterwards early in the 20th century. The transformation from traditional folk tales to modern short stories of artistic character, they included works inspired with ethics and preaching and those reflecting vividly the real life. The short stories made no small contributions to the modernisation of the genre in particular and Vietnam’s national literature in general.
