Abstract:
学府夏冬 (The Summer and Winter on Campus) is one of the most mentioned works in Wong Meng Voon (i.e. Huang Mengwen)’s oeuvre. It is about an independent school set up by grassroots organisations in the monkey community which is later closed down by the unreasonable authority. Its genre is what is now known as the “micro novel”, a very short form of story that was made popular with the great efforts of Dr Wong himself. As a working copy with amendments, this manuscript is highly valuable as it allows the reader to see the actual thinking process and constant improvisation of the author in his literary pursuits.
