Pub. Date: 03/29/2001
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Taiwan has evolved dramatically from a little-known island to an internationally acclaimed economic miracle and thriving democracy. The history of modern Taiwanese poetry both parallels and articulates this transformation from peripheral colony to economic and cultural center. Comprehensive in both depth and scope, Frontier Taiwan beautifully captures individual poets' achievements in the nation's modern poetic traditions. Containing translations of 400 poems from 50 poets spanning the entire twentieth century, this anthology reveals Taiwan in a broad spectrum of themes, forms, and styles: from lyrical meditation to political satire, haiku to concrete poetry, surrealism to postmodernism. The in-depth introduction outlines the development of modern poetry within Taiwan's unique historical and cultural context.

Name: Rhea Age: 18 Love/Crush: Interested? You have to be able to handle her. ;) Persona: Rhea is over all a kind person. Though, she can be sarcastic and cruel to someone she doesn't trust or like. Fortunately, she rarely ever dislikes somebody. She can be laid back or she can be out going. Her mood varies. She is adventurous and can be extremely playful. She does have a jealous streak and will tend to become envious of she sees anyone hitting on her crush or boyfriend. If you cross her, she won't hesitate to put you in your place. Her bark is worse than her bite. In fact, Rhea doesn't bite.. Much. Looks: Rhea is about 5.2 in height. She has a slim build, her body toned. However, she curves in all the right places. She is petite and often is referred to as "cute", but don't let her "kitten" look fool you. This girl has claws. Her hair is dark brown and comes down to her mid back. It is layered and when she straightens it, it appears choppy. Her face is pixie shaped and her nose is small with full lips. Her eyes are dark green and often reflect her fiery spirit. Her high cheek bones are evidence of her Native American heritage. Her skin is a light olive hue and she tans easily in the sun. Rhea can be seen wearing anything that is comfortable and looks good on her. However, simply put, she loves skinny jeans. Likes: Animals, Old movies, Romance novels (even though she doesn't act like it), Sunrise, Beach, Spicy food, Photography, and Writing Dislikes: Snobs, Rude people, Girls who may hit on her crush/boyfriend, Mornings, Humid weather, Cold weather. Other: She has a black cat named Jinx.
Age: 16/ height: 5'4"/ weight: 90 pounds./ appearance: she wears a green t-shirt with loose fitting blue skinnyjeans that must be held up by a belt, along with a pair of brown boots. She has shoulderlength blond hair and sea blue eyes./ special: she cannot speak beyond yells and cries./ likes: food, to feel safe, food, having friends, food, having fun and, i almost forgot, food./ dislikes: being judged, men that hurt, people who never know when to shut up and being hurt in any way./ personnality: she is of the uppity sort. Having no ability to speak, she has mastered silence. Though she hates rambling, she is a good listener all the same. She enjoys eating, a lot. She is forgiving, currious, innocent, a little naive and light hearted.
