This is a course on Hong Kong literature in English. I have attached the lecture powerpoints for both texts, hope it helps a bit. The first one is by Richard Mason and the second by Eileen Chang. Do tell me if you need any thing else. I hope that the paper will be tightly structured, following a clear thesis statement. And it is very important to really use examples from both texts when writing this essay. If there are any references, please do it in MLA format, thank you.
