Abstract:

"This rich and wide-ranging book grows from a single idea of extraordinary analytic power - that literary work has its origin in a perception of separation from the feelings, places, and experiences that make up the identity of the author - a state to which, either figuratively or literally, the term 'exile' may be applied. Zeng shows how pervasive this perception is in literature, and how an awareness of this motif may serve to show the underlying connectedness of works across a huge spectrum of times and cultures."--Eric Henry, Senior Lecturer, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Asian Studies Department.
