Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Taiwan xiangtu writer Huang Chunming: Three short stories, with a critical introduction
by Du, Willy Chenja, M.F.A., The University of Iowa, 2011, 68; 1550892
Abstract (Summary)

This introduction serves to provide a sketch of the circumstances that led to the prominence of "nativist," or xiangtu literature from the Republic of China (i.e. Taiwan) in the late twentieth century. Huang Chunming, the author of the stories featured in this thesis, has been a prolific writer from the east of the Taiwan Straits since 1962, and has contributed to the popularization of Taiwanese xiangtu literature in the decades of the island's industrialization experience. In Huang's world of fictional characters, readers have multifaceted records of the Taiwanese people's lives and the culture of their native soil.
