The Spider and the Fly: The Evil of Capitalism

September 27, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library, #401 Add to Calendar

The Spider and the Fly, first published in Germany by Wilhem Liebknecht casts a children’s parable into a socialist tale of evil capitalists (“spider”) and hapless workers (“flies”), and was extremely popular in the Russian revolutionary movement in the early 20th century. Come see our new acquisition of the Chinese rendition of this story. Who produced it? Where was it distributed? Who read it?

Patricia Polansky, our Russian Bibliographer, and Dongyun Ni, our Chinese Studies Librarian, will tell the exciting stories behind this rare copy.

This event is sponsored by the College of Arts & Humanities, and Thomas Hale Hamilton Library.
