|Other Titles:||The Dialectics between “the Self” and “the People:”The Discussion on the Modern Poetry Polemic|
Department of Taiwan Culture, Languages, and Literature, NTNU
The Modern Poetry Polemic which took place in the early 1970s is regarded as the harbinger of the debate surrounding Taiwanese Native Literature. This Polemic is generally believed to have been triggered by the rising nationalism which was due to continuous diplomatic setbacks. However, the literary cause for the polemic should not be overlooked.This reflection on modernist literature has been underway since the mid-1960s, when Taiwanese modernist literature was at its peak. By focusing on the discussion of the ModernPoetry Polemic, this paper explores how the concepts of “the self” and “the people” became controversial topics. The aims of this paper are, firstly, to analyze how the poets and writers imagine “the self” and “the people.” Secondly, it will look at how the concepts of “the self” and “the people” are imagined and practiced. Finally, the author will consider the argument against the compatibility of these two concepts and propose that they are not only compatible but inseparable.
