Taiwanese Literature, Poetry

Part of the Taiwanese Modern Literature Series

The first volume in the Taiwanese Modern Literature Series, Drifting consists of translations from Cheung's Drifters, first published in Taipei in 1986. This collection centers upon the metaphors of drifting, in which language and meaning wander between two worlds, and East and the West, between the private home and a shared country. the metaphor, of course, also brings up the disillusionments of contemporary Taiwanese culture and the seemingly impossible dream of the shared homeland with China. The book received Taiwan's most coveted literary award, the National Literature and Arts Prize in 1989.

Professor of Asian Studies at the university of Southern California in Los Angeles, Dominic Cheung first came to the United States as a graduate student in 1967. He sees himself as an American writing in Chinese, and as a Chinese poet and Asian American writer both.
