A World of Poetry with Mountains as Its Longitude and Oceans as Its Latitude: On the Poetic Writing of Chilai Books by Yang Mu
Yang Mu is a well-known Taiwanese poet and essayist whose creative practice writing poems and essays over the years has characterized his trans-genre writing with the double expression by way of poetry and prose. Based on his Chilai Books(including Chilai Pre-book and Chilai Post-book), this article is an attempt to explore how Yang Mu constructs his poetic world in the writing of his essays and how he highlights his attitude as a writer and his attitude towards life through double expression by way of poetry and prose. In his Chilai Books, he not only has completed the recount of his own exper ience through autobiographical essays, telling of the meaning of his growing up, but he has also constructed a poetic world with poetic methods, the poetic world reflecting the fact that it has inherited the ancient poetic tradition of things and has created something new in making the refining of the images of grass, trees, insects, fish, birds and animals more temperate a nd profound and also the fact that it has provided mountains and oceans as a coordinate by casting time and space in images. It thus can be said that the construction of a poetic world is Yang Mu's way of representation in cleverly combining poetry with prose that makes his essays unique.
