Taiwan Fiction Writers: The Works of Huang Chun-Ming and Yang Ching-Chu


In this seminar we will be reading select short stories from two nativist Taiwanese writers: Huang Chun-Ming and Yang Ching-Chu. Huang Chun-Ming’s work is considered a national treasure. He writes compassionately of the ordinary people and their search for identity. Writing with humor and at times sparking controversy, he describes with dexterity the disparity between the native and the foreign. Yang Ching-Chu is a noted voice for the Taiwanese working-class. His nationalist sentiments led him to false imprisonment during Taiwan’s White Terror. When the government finally released him, he came out writing and became a voice for the voiceless. His stories describe Taiwan’s change from an agricultural colony of Japan to a modern industrial society. Many of his stories have aired on TV as Taiwanese dramas.
