Department of Taiwan Culture, Languages, and Literature, NTNU
This paper intends to analyze, by using the perspective of Sinophone studies, the subaltern people’s difficulties of expressing themselves in Taiwan Trilogy. They have a strong desire to speak for themselves but their efforts often fail. The author Shih Shu-ching writes these three novels not to speak on behalf of the lower class, but to look for the traces of their forgotten and concealed existence in history. Sinophone studies aim at deconstructing the cultural hegemony that places China as the center. These approaches enable us to look at the multiple layers of minoritarian Chinese languages. Readers can clearly see the attempt to construct Taiwan subjectivity as a diverse and heterogeneous one in Taiwan Trilogy. This construction of a new subject position is forever in a dynamic and ambiguous state of becoming.
