AbstractThis paper mainly focuses on the coexistence relationship of Chen Ruo Xi’s life and literature from a “multi-perspective on life expenditures.” Setting her works as longitude line and her life expenditures as latitude line, this paper tries to shed light on the close relationship between Chen Ruo Xi’s literature works and life experiences in different phases throughout her life. In doing so, it can be drawn out Chen Ruo Xi’s concerns and viewpoints on her compositions as well as her perception of societal observation and life spirits on life expenditures.
In constructing Chen Ruo Xi’s “life expenditures,” this paper initially generalizes the influence of “home” on her personality and self-identification. First, the works in early era of modern literature will be reviewed, followed by the discussion on Chen Ruo Xi’s compositions about her experiences of “returning” to Mainland China during Cultural Revolution and the inspection on her reflection for the country and her concerns for the society. Furthermore, Chen Ruo Xi’s works when she is overseas and after she comes back to Taiwan will be compared as so to display her perspective and multiple viewpoints on life and expenditures. The emphasis will be put on Chen Ruo Xi’s transformation and non-transformation on her life expenditures as well as her interpretation for the coexistence relationship between life and literature to demonstrate her multi-perspective on life expenditures and the possibility she makes to interpret the coexistence between life and literature.
