Ivan Bunin had his loyal readers in China no matter whether in the special era of literature serving politics or in the era of people's ideological emancipation at the end of the last century. Bunin’s acceptance in China shows the diversity of Russian literature and its tremendous vitality in China, which has important research value. This paper explores the reasons why Bunin is popular in China from the perspective of traditional Chinese aesthetics. It is hoped that it will be of reference value to the study of the reception of Russian literature in China.
