Isolated yet open, restricted yet free, the island of Taiwan has evolved into a dynamic, democratic crossroads of cultures and influences. Taiwanese poetry has assimilated influences not only from classical Chinese culture, but from Europe, Japan, and America. Today, it is a lively blend of indigenous, Hokkien, Hakka, and other ethnic and language groups, exploring diverse themes and forms, from the lyric to the postmodern.
