Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book, which demonstrates that concern with space in postmodern aesthetics helps one to understand the paradoxical characteristics of modern aesthetics more thoroughly. Moreover, examining the idea of space embodied in Taiwanese modernist poetry helps to differentiate its aesthetics from that of modernist poetry in Mainland China. Finally, modern people have been driven to dwell in a condition of placelessness due to wars, exile, urbanization and so forth. Taiwanese modernist poetry shows us how people responded to their new living spaces. Taiwanese modernist poetry also shows us the ways in which modern Chinese people tackle the condition of placelessness.

Keywords: modern aesthetics; placelessness; Taiwanese modernist poetry
