This essay considers Taiwanese thinker Chen Yingzhen as a contemporary medium of history so as to investigate his decades-long literary praxis. In particular, it analyzes the ways in which Chen Yingzhen powerfully epitomizes the “(im)possibility of love” through the problematic of historical integration: a problematic speaking to tradition, colonialism, and the Cold War/neocolonialism all at once. In virtue of his literary and intellectual accomplishment, this essay attends to the three key notions of “division,” “civil war,” and “people” as cross-referencing domains. At the same time, via a cross-referencing framework, this essay offers a perspective from Korea, demonstrating the historical specificities of South Korea by situating South Korea in the context of the region of East Asia.
