Title Becoming Future: On the Lyric Apparatuses of East and Beyond and The Whirling Island Author Liu, Nai-Tzu Associate Professor, Department of Taiwanese Literature, National Cheng Kung University Abstract While Taiwanese literature in the late 20 century was at a time entangled with the heated debates on identity issues, the numerous topics of creative writing emerged in this new age successively delivered profound and deep ethical cares in lyric fashion. This research project aims to explore and analyze the “lyric apparatuses” in Ping Lu’s East and Beyond and The Whirling Island. By exploring the dynamics of the lyric-becoming in both novels, this project also plans to advance the discourses and interpretations of lyric literature in modern Taiwan. As the project proposes, the “lyric” in East and Beyond and The Whirling Island can be seen as the fuel for literary desire in their own situatedness. The narrative apparatuses of “time is out of the joint,” and the lyric “counterpoint” thus propels the “unfolding” opportunities for subjectivity, history, and writing. In brief, the “rhizomatic fluxes” of “lyric” and “duration” engender the freedom of “becoming future” for subjectivity, history, and writing which are otherwise “territorialized” and “conventionalized.” Grasping the “lyric” as its essence, East and Beyond and The Whirling Island are resonated in their own deliverance as if they were intertwining and implicating with each other as rhizomes that significantly manifest Ping Lu’s literary novelties in the 21 centuries.

Title The Adjustment of Realism: An Analysis of Japanese Character in Ishikawa Tatsuzo and Yang Kui’s Writings from the 1930s to 1945 Author Lo, Shih-Yun Project Assistant Professor, Center for General Education, Chihlee University of Technology Abstract As the scope of the war expanded, the Japanese Empire launched a cultural cooperative movement against colonial writers. Cultural people from Japan, colonial Taiwan, and Korea were mobilized by the authorities to promote the Great East Asia War. Ishikawa Tatsuzo, a Japanese member of the “Pen Forces”, reported his literary work “The Living Soldier” (生きてゐる兵隊) in the battlefield. This novel was banned for over-exposing the negative impression of war. It is a special example in war literature; on the other hand, the Royal Society of Taiwanese Literature (台灣文學奉公會) selected Taiwanese and Japanese writers to visit various production sites in Taiwan in 1944, and according theirs’s actual experiences to write about the attitude of industrial warriors. Yang Kui’s “Behind the Increases of Production” shows the violence of colonialism on personal consciousness, and it also has controversy over whether or not to disobey the national policy. In this context, this article discusses the similarities and differences of Ishikawa Tatsuzo and Yang Kui’s literary works from the 1930s to 1945. The discussion structure is divided into two parts; The first part is the acceptance and evaluation of Ishikawa Tatsuzo in the 1930s Taiwanese literary circles, and compares the written texts of Ishikawa Tatsuzo and Yang Kui on Japanese immigrants; the second part is discussion about the living environment and humanity of the two writers’ wartime writing. Therefore, we can balance the writing strategies of Taiwanese and Japanese left-wing writers in the context of imperial culture from the 1930s to 1945.
