Selected Works by Li Ang (Taipei: Avant-garde Publishing House, 1992)
When Taiwan transitioned from agricultural society to industrial society, family structures collapsed, and awareness of women’s rights rose. Therefore, many “untraditional and bold” woman writers entered the literary scene in Taiwan and Li Ang was the most controversial one.
Li Ang is brilliant at probing into the psyche of her male and female protagonists as they navigate their lovemaking. She constantly examines and reflects on the existing relationship between men and women in society. This adds depth to her literary work and has profound social meaning.
