This chapter discusses Lu Xun and Xu Guangping's relationships with other people, including former and current students and colleagues. Lu Xun’s circle, apart from family, consisted of former fellow-students, ministry colleagues, former and current students and university colleagues, writers, and political activists. As was usual for the time, it did not extend beyond the educated elite. The same was true of Xu Guangping except that she had relatively closer contact with members of the government in Canton through family connections. References to friends and associates were mainly by Lu Xun. They were relatively few in 1925, increased greatly in 1926, and decreased again in 1929. Friends who proved to be disloyal were subjected to added abuse, especially in the case of Gao Changhong.

Keywords:   Lu Xun's students, Sun Fuyuan, family connections, enemies, transparent libels, ministry colleagues, Gao Changhong
