The Interactive Meaning of Han-wen, From Fujian to Modern Taiwan and East Asia: Take “Farewell, Mi-Xi Xian Sheng” (Son Mi-Xi Xian Sheng Shi Wen Ji) as an example

This article focus on the interactive relationship between modern Taiwan and East Asia’s Han-wen works. Instead of taking local literary field as the research realm, I focus on the phenomenon in “Fujian”, tried to clarify the Interaction of Han-wen Literature between Taiwan/ Japan/ China, what role Taiwanese intellectual played, and its meaning. The reason why I chose Fujian as research realm, is because the policy of the “Small Three Links” and “Cycle Economy Thought and the Construction of Economic Zone at Western Bank of Taiwan Straits”, makes Fujian not only in the political but also in literature field became an eye-catching area. But if we examine the research achievement, we’ll find that most of them considered that Taiwan literature was influenced by, or at least originated in Fujian. Although it’s partly true, but it’s only partly true. In fact, during the modern period, especially between 1895-1911, because of the complex political situation such as Japanese invasion of Taiwan, the Nanshin-ron, and the fact that Fujian became a part of Japan in 1898, thus, there had different historical and political dimension such as “Japanese ruled”, “late Qing” and “MeiJi”, which made the literary field more complex and imbroglio. In order to research the circumstance of this period’s literary field, I chosen “Farewell, Mi-Xi Xian Sheng” (Son Mi-Xi Xian Sheng Shi Wen Ji) as an example, hope it will help me clarify these phenomenon above.
