Annotation: This article examines the study of Mikhail Sholokhov’s work in China, analyses the approaches and trends in the reception of Mikhail Sholokhov’s work in China since the 1930s to 2020s. As a result, it has been proven that approaches to the study of Mikhail Sholokhov’s work in China change depending on the nature of Soviet-Chinese relations. In the 1930s-40s, especially during the War of Chinese People’s Resistance against Japanese aggression, there was a noticeable increase in interest in Mikhail Sholokhov’s journalism and prose during the war. In the 1950s, under conditions of all-round cooperation between China and the USSR, the study of Mikhail Sholokhov’s work in China developed rapidly. In the 1960s-70s, in a situation of a sharp deterioration in relations between the two countries, Chinese literary critics criticised the works of Mikhail Sholokhov, however in the 1980s-90s, the researchers especially noted the patriotism, heroism and humanism reflected in the work of Mikhail Sholokhov; a number of conferences on the work of Mikhail Sholokhov were held at the largest universities in China; several monographs on the works of the writer were published. In the early 21st century, Chinese Sholokhov scholars continue the study of Mikhail Sholokhov’s work in the following areas – the spiritual and artistic world of Mikhail Sholokhov, linguistic and cultural features, female images in the works of Mikhail Sholokhov, reception and literary and art criticism of the works of Mikhail Sholokhov in China.
Keywords: creative work of Mikhail Sholokhov, translation of works, artistic world, linguistic and cultural features, reception, criticism and studies of Mikhail Sholokhov in China.
