For many years, he has been absorbed in writing, spread the themes of the times, and delivered positive energy in the fields of literature, history, and poetry where he has realized great achievements. In his large number of works, he has depicted life, phenomena, and spirit, winning a reputation for 'Shenzhen School'. This new book is of great historical and cultural significance and is also a masterpiece for studying modern Chinese writers and learning about the development history of modern literature and art."

Yang Xinbin: "Mr. Zhang Xiaomin has continued writing for decades and created lots of works. He is a model of the later generation. He is philanthropic and responsible. His monographs, compiled works, papers, poems, and essays are all filled with rich patriotism. The newly-publishedCritical Biography of Mu Fuvividly describes the legendary life of Mr. Mu Fu and reveals the intricate development history of the new poetry in modern Chinese literature, providing important reference value and academic value for readers and researchers."

Wu Dinghai: "In his career of teaching, administration, and academic research for decades, Mr. Zhang Xiaomin has created many works as he never stopped writing. He is impressively persistent as a scholar. He can enjoy the joys of life now, but he is still busy yet happy with the textual research of ancient books and the exploration of the ancient and modern times. It is of the great inspiring significance for citizens in modern metropolises, notably young people, to read the poems of Mr. Mu Fu and taste the life experience of the author."

Zhang Qingning: "Mr. Mu Fu was down to earth and made remarkable achievements step by step from the 20th century. His over-70-year creation career witnessed the changes in the better part of the 20th century, left numerous literary works, and also disclosed the tortuous development of the Chinese new poetry. We are gratified to present this book to Mr. Mu Fu before his long sleep. It took Mr. Zhang Xiaomin 30 years to study, collect materials, and finalize this book in which the nearly-90-year life of Mu Fu, his literary and dramatic works, and corresponding analysis and evaluation are introduced in detail. It has been the most complete critical biography of Mu Fu so far."
