Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which supports the development of an alternative approach to understanding aesthetics in Taiwanese modernist poetry. It is concerned not with abstract ideologies, but with the daily living space of the Taiwanese modernist poets. The diversity and intensity of these poets? experiences of ?place? and ?placelessness? will be emphasized. Since modernist aesthetics is an outgrowth of ?placelessness ,? a study of the following five major Taiwanese modernist poets?Lomen, Luo Fu, Rong Zi, Yu Guangzhong and Zheng Chouyu?not only helps to shed light on these poets? interactions with their ?places? but also enhances our understanding of modernist aesthetics. The book is divided into four parts. It starts by examining the most personal and substantial space ?the house?and ends with the most public and abstract one?an imagined literary community .
