Description

Much as exile was a key theme of 20th-century literature, the theme of migration has emerged as a keystone of 21st-century writing. Drawing from his own experience, from the Chinese Popular Army during the Cultural Revolution, to his position as a professor at the University of Chicago, Ha Jin approaches other exiled literary figures in search of commonalities and differences across place and time. In this book, he asks fascinating questions about language, migration, and place in an increasingly globalized world.show more

Review quote

Ha Jin reúne los diferentes hilos del exilio, los diversos modos de enfrentarse a la migración, en una reflexión brillante y aguda que tiene mucho que ver con el futuro de la literatura. Tomando como punto de partida su propia experiencia personal (su paso del ejército chino durante la Revolución Cultural a su puesto de profesor en la Universidad de Chicago) se acerca a otros exilios literarios en busca de puntos en común y discrepancias según lugares y épocas. Ha Jin toma a Alexander Solzhenitsyn y Lin Yutang como ejemplos del sentimiento de obligación del escritor hacia su país natal, mientras Joseph Conrad y Vladimir Nabokov actúan como ejemplos de escritores que decidieron adoptar el inglés como lengua literaria. Finalmente, V. S. Naipaul y Milan Kundera ilustran el modo que nuestro tiempo de cambios constantes obliga a los escritores a reconsiderar la idea de patria. Por el camino, Sebald o Cavafis le ayudan a matizar la idea de inmigración.show more
