Department of Chinese, NTNU
This article discusses about the "dual (home / nationality) literary identities" case of Du Yun Xie (Wu Jin) - poet of the “nine leaves” sect, at the same time discusses about the complexity,diversity and research issues in history of Malaysia Chinese literature. The View of Tropical written by Du Yun Xie under the pseudonym of Wu Jin reflects the atmosphere of an era, narrates the experiences at “home” & “country” of the Chinese in the 50s and their emotional entanglements in between Malaya & China. Prior to the era of globalization, the (forced) movement and migration of Malaysian Chinese writers are different from the freedom / autonomy movement of contemporary writers. This article attempts to restore the atmosphere of that era and given together with a series of reasonable explanations. Secondly, the publication of The View of Tropical is closely related to the literary debates of that time. Banished by the British colonial government to leave Singapore, Du Yun Xie then joined with the modern Chinese literature while Wu Jin left behind with the Malaysian Chinese literature. Malaysian Chinese literature however,ignored the mast contribution of Du Yun Xie towards Malayan poetries. He was once recognized as “authors from China”. On the contrary, his Malayan poetries and identity as Malaysian Chinese writer was ignored in Mainland China’s Chinese literature. Du Yun Xie has attained the conclusive position in modern Mainland China’s Chinese literature. His reasonable position in Malaysian Chinese literature however, still pending for declaration by us.
