ABSTRACT

Previous studies on Taiwan Indigenous Literature are mostly from the perspective of postcolonial counter-discourse. In this way, The spiritual tradition of the indigenous culture is ignored and considered superstitious. However, this paper uses the perspectives of poetics and mythology aesthetics to analyze ‘The Eyes of The Sky’(written by Rapongan Syaman), ‘The Spirit of Yushan’(written by Husluman),and ‘Palisia Tongku Saveq’ (written by Neqou Soqluman). In the beginning of ‘The Eyes of The Sky’, Rapongan Syaman changes the narrator of the myth ‘Flying Fish’ from human to a fish. Here, a question arises regarding anthropocentrism. In ‘The Spirit of Yushan’, Vava put the indigenous’ oral statement tradition in writing which vitalized Chinese literature. Also, Vava recreated the vanishing culture of the Indiginous in the abstract world of literature. In ‘Palisia tongku saveq’, Neqou Soqluman added some elements of fantasy to the myths of the indiginous which created a new genre in Chinese literature.
