The NMTL initiated the “compound exhibition” in October 2011. By combining the permanent exhibition “The Inner World of Taiwan Literature” with the theme of general exhibitions, we extracted the wonderful elements from the permanent exhibition and transformed them into individual and unique exhibitions, and the Tainan Literature Exhibition was the first of its kind. Starting from Tainan, it was like the first national museum dedicated to literary arts set out on a journey to the world from Tainan. The book has two volumes, including an album and a text description of the exhibition. The text description includes Taiwan writers from aboriginal peoples to postwar writers who crossed over languages in 1949. With this book, readers can meet different figures in literature, domestic and foreign, past and present, who have been to this past leading city and past capital of Taiwan—Tainan and to the areas where a host of literary activists have gathered—Yenfan and Nanying. With literature, writers have formed Tainan literature through continuous creation from the Kingdom of the Chengs to postwar Taiwan. Although neither the album nor the exhibition is perfect, it is absolutely an important start.

As the centenary of the Republic of China, 2011 was both historically and culturally significant, and it was also a fruitful year for the NMTL. Apart from actively planning and organizing related literary exhibitions, many innovative literary affairs were initiated in the same year. Through continuous efforts, we made fruitful achievements in different aspects, including collection, research, exhibition, education, and public service. We endeavored to find out ways to preserve and promote Taiwan literature and to fulfill our social responsibility as a government agency. Apart from continuously improving museum functions, we have spared no pain to promote Taiwan literature over the Internet and through translations upon NMTL’s solid foundation.

Hundreds of periodicals on Taiwan literature have stopped publishing since 1910s, and many editions are lost, have disappeared and are difficult to collect. Through the Taiwan Literature Periodical Compilation & Collection Interpretation Project, we collected, collated, studied, and interpreted related data. This book presents the outcomes of Stages 1 and 2 of the project. It includes a general description of literature periodicals published during Japanese colonization (1910-1945) and postwar period (1945-1949); and the frontispiece, title page, basic data, and introduction of 56 periodicals. With this introduction book, readers can understand the documentary data of dozens of literature periodicals and see the literary content and literary activities, and even the social condition, in that time.

Professor Yi-lin Shih of the Department of Chinese Literature, National Cheng Kung University, is the principal investigator of the Complete Taiwanese Poems Project, with Professor Chun-hsiung Hsu of the Department of Chinese, National Taiwan Normal University, as the co-principal investigator. Experts in classical Chinese poems written by Taiwanese poets are members of the editing panel.

In addition to poems written by Taiwanese poets, works by non-Taiwanese poets written in Taiwan are also collected. The time range covers three hundred years, from the Kingdom of the Chengs (1661-1683) to Japanese colonization (1895-1945). The people, places, events, and objects during this period are faithfully presented in the book. All works are brilliant, energetic, sincere and magnanimous, and worthy of reading in detail.

Poetry was the mainstream classical literature in this period, with prose, novel, and lyrics second. In this volume, these genres are discussed in terms of three sections: literary groups, literary writers, and literary works. Each chapter begins with a different region to display the status of literature development and the important figures and their works in different regions. Japanese people writing Chinese poems in this period are also discussed to explore the writing orientation presented in the classical literature, in an attempt to depict the development of classical literature in Taiwan during Japanese colonization.
