ABSTRACT

It is somewhat unfamiliar that the modern new literature movement was developed in Taiwan during the Imperial Japan occupation. From whom did the new literature movement of Taiwan originate? That's right Chun-Mu Hsieh(1902-1969). Chun-Mu Hsieh grew up in Taiwan New Literature infancy, and He is an important figure who opened modern Taiwan literature, a leader of the anti Japanese movement in the Imperialist Japanese period, and a philosopher. Since 1921, Chun-Mu Hsieh started his creative activities under the pseudonym Zhui feng (追風), and he in earnest began writing in 1922. In July 1922, he published serially the first novel of Taiwan new literature, “Where is she to the young sister who is struggling(彼女は何処へ—苦悩若い姉妹)” in the magazine 『Taiwan(臺灣)』 (No.4~No.7 issues), which was launched in Tokyo, Japan. He did not stay in the creation of novels, and in April 1924, he published Taiwan's first short poem, “Imitation of poems(詩の眞似する)” in 『Taiwan』 (Volume 1, the 5th year). Chun-Mu Hsieh continued replacement of his identity in writers, cultural activists, journalists, commentator and political figures. There is a close relationship between the time of Chun-Mu Hsieh's literary creation and the formation of Taiwan's new literature. Thus, through Chun-Mu Hsieh, it is possible to look at the prototype of the new literature movement of Taiwan, and furthermore, it will be an opportunity to view the development and destruction of the modern new literature movement in East Asia such as neighboring Korea, China, and Japan from a multifaceted perspective.
