Meiniang was a leading female writer active in Manchukuo and Huabei area during 1930’s and 1940’s. Still, her life and literature has not yet received deserved attention in the studies of Chinese modern literature due to the political situation in China after liberation and 1949 revolution. Since the 1980’s, new research on Meiniang and her works have been frequently coming out in China, however most of the research so far has been conducted mainly in the context of the female consciousness. Meiniang's novels clearly revealed the miserable reality of women who were alienated from society at the time, especially during Japanese occupation, reflecting the intense sense of women that the author reveals through the woman gaze on prevailing society. Clearly notable feature in Meiniang's literature is the trauma from her mother's absence when she was a child and therefore notion of motherhood is very prominent not only in her literature but also in her personal life. In particular, the reasoning and exploration of maternal instinct is one of the main pillars of Meiniang’s literature. Build around this observation, this study on Meiniang’s novels, aims to show how this reflects the writer's psychology and expression of motherhood in her literature.
