Immigrant Subjectivities in Asian American and Asian Diaspora Literatures

£7.99

Product description

Review
"This book opens up a whole new way of examining Asian American literature--the postcolonial approach to immigrant subjectivity--that will influence future scholarship in the field. Personally I gained a fresh new look at some of the works I'm familiar with." -- Ruth Yu Hsiao, Tufts University"This is very useful in the way it brings us information and analyzes it. It's particularly good on what has happened in Taiwan, in its literature and in the movies of Ang Lee, which are very popular in America right now. The issues Ma raises are ones being currently discussed, but much of the time the discussion has amounted to throwing stones. Ma has presented information and steered us through the rapids because he is a good literary critic who reads the texts carefully, who has the frame of reference (in social, political, and economic terms) and who has passion for his subject, a passion that does not get in the way of clarity." --Peter Nazareth, The University of Iowa"The book strips immigrant as well as native readers of their illusions and false expectations, and will enable them to relate to one another on the ground zero of humanity. It provides new insights into 'immigrant subjectivities'--how immigrants cope and construct self-images of survival in their adopted land. It is fascinating reading." --Paulino Lim, Jr., California State UniversityAbout the AuthorSheng-mei Ma is Associate Professor in the Department of American Thought and Language at Michigan State University.
