Huckleberry Finn has been translated into Chinese no fewer than ninety times.
That is from new and intriguing Mark Twain in China, by Selina Lai-Henderson.
I had not known that Twain played a significant role in speaking up for the Chinese in America, and fighting the prejudice against them. Later in his career he described himself as an “anti-imperialist” and “Chinese Boxer” in the fight against Western imperialism. Lai-Henderson notes:
In one of his anti-imperialist writings, “The United States of Lyncherdom” (1901), he urged American missionaries to leave China, for they should “come home and convert these Christians!”
