These authors commonly show that when the front part of the Chinese society, especially the urban area, was moving first towards developmental goals, the people at the hindsight of the society was lagging behind overburdened by lack of education, superstition and by an uncertain future. Lu Xun’s short story, “My Old Home”, renders the image of a peasant life in a sad and gloomy context. In such an austere background, the narrator compares his present life with his past among the peasants. Necessarily, this comparison allows Xun’s readers to view the changes, in a peasant’s life, which occurs during the twenty years. During these twenty years the narrator has turned into a man of wealth while his friend Jun Tu, a village farmer’s son, has been suffering from extreme poverty. Jun Tu has six children.
