Catalogue Note

The text reads:

Quotations from Mao Tse Tung
Talks at the Yenan Forum on Literature and Art

What then is the crux of the matter. In my opinion, it consists fundamentally of the problem of working for the masses and how to work for the masses.  Unless these two problems are solved, or solved properly, our writers and artists will be ill adapted to their environment and their tasks and will come up against a series of difficulties from without and within.
