Il Modernismo poetico a Taiwan negli anni Trenta
Yang Chichang e la società poetica Le Moulin
Established in 1933 during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan (1895‑1945) and rediscovered only in the 1980s, Le Moulin poetry society marked the beginning of Modernism in Taiwan. Drawing from Nishiwaki Junzaburō’s Surrealist poetry and the Japanese School of the New Sensibilities, the group, led by the poet Yang Chichang 楊熾昌, fostered a new poetic style to depict the solitude of modern life as well as the hardship of colonialism. The paper aims to analyse the emergence of Taiwan Modernism in the 1930s through the rediscovery of Le Moulin’s poetry and the translation of some of Yang Chichang’s most representative poems.
