Now, for the first time, a chronologically ordered compendium of Taiwanese literature is available in a Western language, taking into account the different linguistic and cultural influences Taiwan has been exposed to throughout its history: from oral traditions to early poetry in classical forms and the beginnings of modern literatures to recent narratives - translated from four languages and extensively annotated - this volume offers a completely new approach to Taiwanese literature.

In addition, the book also raises broader questions, especially about the relationship between literature and politics in Taiwan - and whether literature can play a role in forging the country's identity.
