This paper presents a comparative analysis on Chen Yingzhen’s “Wo de didi Kangxiong” (“My brother Kangxiong”) and Wang Shangyi’s “Ye gezi de huanghun” (“Wild pigeon’s dusk”) in the cultural-historical context of Taiwan in 1960s, in the aim of exploring the origin of “nihilism” which had been prevailed among Taiwan youth from 1950s to 1960s. Furthermore, the paper reexamines the hidden but intimate relationship between modernism and left-wing intellectuals.
