Abstract—This paper aims to make a general introduction of the translation and publication of Lin Yutang’s English works in China. Lin Yutang was a famous writer, who wrote over 30 English works. His works were very popular worldwide from 1930s to 1960s. Many of them were translated into many other languages and published in different countries.
