Blurb/Shorttext:
Do you know there are more than fourteen groups of aboriginal people in Taiwan? Are you aware that many Taiwanese aboriginal people started to pick up their pen and write only after the 1980s? What is the difference between Taiwanese aboriginal literature and Taiwanese literature? Finding the Way Home is a major contribution to aboriginal literary studies in English. Through the author’s beautifully crafted translations, it brings many works of Taiwanese aboriginal literature to an English readership for the first time. Application of postcolonial-colonial discourse explicates the close relationship between the socio-political context and Taiwanese Aboriginal Literature, and brings the marginal into the center of focus. In this book, you will find out why aboriginal writer Lanpoan once said: my body is so close to my father and uncles, but my soul is so far away from theirs. And when Rukai writer Auvini says, I try to sing love songs to my readers with my rough lyrics, what kind of love songs does Auvini sing? You will find surprises and answers in this book.
