    [missing]

    While most of the May Fourth writers after Lu Xun tie feudalism to cannibalism and devote themselves one way or another to the cause of national salvation, Xu Dishan, as is evident in "The Merchant's Wife" [missing], appears to be more more concerned with the salvation of the heroine's soul than with the glaring inequities that reduce her to her present misery. (page xxiii, The Columbia Anthology of Modern Chinese Literature, second edition)
    In the hands of Qiao Dianyun [missing], humor is satirically black and savage. (page xxvii, ibid.)
    What does [missing] mean in the above quotations?

    It seems to mean that full citation information is missing.
