The seventeen years of literature, i.e., the seventeen years from 1949 to 1966 after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, appear a large number of classic works on revolutionary and historical themes or socialist construction themes, which later became known as the “Red Classics”, and had a great influence at that time and later on, such as The Red Rock, The Spectrum of the Red Flag, Red Sun, The History of Entrepreneurship, Song of Spring, Great Changes in the Hills and Villages, Defending Yan’an, and The Plains of Forests and Seas and Snow, etc. Under the influence of the constantly improving and optimizing Chinese social, economic and cultural environment, more and more researchers have questioned the excessive recognition of Western cultural values in some fields of study, and have turned to re-examine the values of traditional Chinese culture and modern advanced culture. The national and progressive kernel embedded in the “17 Years of Literature” fits this pursuit of the researchers, therefore, re-evaluating and examining the “17 Years of Literature” from different perspectives has gradually become one of the hotspots of literary research in recent years. This paper investigates the reading status of “17 Years of Literature” among college students taking undergraduates of Jiangsu Normal University, and puts forward a proposal on the reading status of “17 Years of Literature” among college students based on the results of the survey. Based on the results of the survey, some problems may exist in the reading of “17 Years of Literature”, and based on this, some constructive strategies to promote the reading of “17 Years of Literature” in universities and colleges are provided.
