Crescent Moon Society
The Crescent Moon Society was a Chinese literary society founded by the poet Xu Zhimo in 1923, which operated until 1931. It was named after The Crescent Moon, a poem by Rabindranath Tagore. In addition to Xu Zhimo, its other members included leading author and educator Hu Shi, poet Wen Yiduo, writers Liang Shih-chiu and Shen Congwen, Rao Mengkan, and sociologist Pan Guangdan.
The Crescent Moon Society—along with other aspects of China's literary establishment at that time—was part of the larger New Culture Movement.
The organisation dissolved shortly after the death of Xu Zhimo in November 1931.
