Mao Dun's trilogy 'Corrosion' was published in Fiction Monthly Magazine from 1927 to 1928, and Chang Chunfan's 'Violet Heroine' was published in Violet Magazine from 1929 to 1930. Not only their published time was near, the overlapping backdrop of the two works also showed convergence. Moreover, both their theme was ＂revolution plus love.＂ The two works reflected the complex and diverse social situations and people's behaviors at the end of the 1920s as well as showcased the intertextuality and dialogues between serious literature and popular fiction. This article will discuss and compare the descriptions of male and female bodies against the backdrop of revolution as well as the implicit revolution anxiety in 'Eclipse' by Mao and 'Violet Heroine' by Chang. For example, the sick male body in Mao's work forms a contrast to the martial female body in Chang's story. Through the analysis of body display in the two works, this article further points out their difference of display modes and inner spirits under the same theme of ＂revolution plus love＂ in the hope to show the intertextuality and enrich the dialogues between serious literature and popular fiction.
