    (E–pub READ) [古都 Author Chu Tien–hsin] 4 stories and a novella The stories were very hit or miss The first one was probably my favorite As for the novella I feel like only a Waishengren (外省人)would really appreciate it And even then only one who grew up between the 60's and 80's or thereabouts I guess On the other hand I think it could be of great interest to historians i

    (E–pub READ) [古都 Author Chu Tien–hsin] I found The Old Capital itself a frustrating read; what am I supposed to feel about all these streets and buildings I've never known? But the short stories were excellent especially Hungarian Water Do I have a smell like that?

Characters 古都 Author Chu Tien-hsin

Review ´ 古都 Author Chu Tien-hsin 102 Smells and sensations of their city and try to reconcile themselves to their rapidly changing worldThe novella is built on the memories and recollections of a woman trying to make sense of herself and her homeland After a trip to Kyoto to meet with a friend she returns to Taipei where having been mistaken for a Japanese tourist she revisits the sites of her youth using a Japanese colonial map of the city Seeing Taipei anew the narrator confronts the complex nature of her identity embodied in the contrast between a serene and preserved Kyoto and a thoroughly modernized and chaotic TaipeiThe growing angst of these narra. I could barely get through this book it was a lot of meandering and stream of consciousness style writing and it was pretty much just tedious to read until this girl in my class gave a presentation on how the character representated that of the flaneur wanderer memory as a form of political dissentThe other short stories like Breakfast at Tiffany s was likable for me but even then there s been other pieces of this writing by this author that I preferred

Review ´ 古都 Author Chu Tien-hsin 102 Tors reflects a deeper anxiety over the legacy of Japan and America in Taiwan The titles of the stories themselves Death in Venice Man of La Mancha Breakfast at Tiffany's Hungarian Water reveal the strong currents of influence that run throughout the collection and shape the content and texture of the writing In his meticulous translation Howard Goldblatt captures the casual intimate feel of Chu T'ien hsin's writing while also maintaining its multiple layers of meaning An intertextual masterpiece The Old Capital is a moving and highly sensual meditation on the elasticity of memory and its power to shape personal identi. I really do want to like this book but it s just too much I had to read it for a course on contemporary Chinese literature and film and this was the selection to represent Taiwan I must admit that I felt like I was getting a survey on Western literary history lots of classic literature is mentioned that I had embarrassingly not read The only thing that sticks with me now is the novella Breakfast at Tiffany s It had a lightness in its tone that I appreciated while trying to delve through the rest of the works I see a common link between the Old Capital and Hou Hsiao Hsien s film Yi Yi Zhu Tianxin s sister Tianwen wrote the screenplay The scene where two ex lovers from Taiwan were walking around Japan reminiscing with each other while speaking in Taiwanese which is important better represents what I think that novella was supposed to be aiming forI think this book might be good for anyone interested in the complex identity of the people of Taiwan Though you could probably just watch the cheesy Taiwanese dramas on the internet instead to get a taste of that Some of them are pretty cute and easier to enjoy

Review ´ 古都 Author Chu Tien-hsin 102 Chu T'ien hsin's The Old Capital is a brilliant evocation of Taiwan's literature of nostalgia and remembrance The novel is centered on the uestion Is it possible that none of your memories count and explores the reliability of remembrances and the thin line that separates fact from fantasyComprised of four thematically linked stories and a novella The Old Capital focuses on the cultural and psychological realities of contemporary Taiwan The stories are narrated by individuals who share an aching nostalgia for a time long past Strolling through modern Taipei they return to the lost imperfect memories called forth by the. 4 stories and a novella The stories were very hit or miss The first one was probably my favorite As for the novella I feel like only a Waishengren would really appreciate it And even then only one who grew up between the 60 s and 80 s or thereabouts I guess On the other hand I think it could be of great interest to historians interested in recent Taipei history She seems to go through the changes of Taipei from post Japanese conuest to post Chiang Kai shek or thereabouts in great detail I tried to follow some of the addresses mentioned but nothing seems to resemble her description any The style seems to be very stream of consciousness Mrs Dalloway style although much of it is in the 2nd person which always strikes me as odd Also I just wanted to point out that Lane 10 Section 3 of Zhongxiao East Road is NOT parallel to Jinan roadAlso also and this is probably just because my family is from Florence But the church in Florence with the Brunelleschi dome isn t the St Florence Church and the Arno river isn t outside the cityhttp4201massblogspotcom
