The Seventh Lu Xun Literature Prize announced its final winners for 2014-17 on August 18 in Beijing, including the Anhui-based poet Chen Xianfa with his anthology The Nine Elegies.

As one of the country’s top literary award, the prize was established to honor Lu Xun, a leading figure of modern Chinese literature.

34 individuals claimed awards among seven categories: novellas, short stories, reportage, poems, essays, theoretical reviews and literary translations.

Among the winners is Chen Xianfa, born in 1967 in Tongcheng, East China’s Anhui. He has published many books of poetry and prose, including Death in Springtime and A Past Life, and won some domestic poetry prizes. His works have been translated into English, French, Russian, Spanish, Greek and Italian.

In addition to Chen, five writers from the province had been shortlisted for the prize for 2014-17.

It is not common that so many local writers are nominated for the prize, local media said, adding that it signals a rise of Anhui’s literary force.
