Sanmao's Literary Creation Style

Guo Zhen
Abstract—Sanmao was formerly known as Chen Ping, a contemporary Taiwanese female writer and traveler. Sanmao is one of the few contemporary prose writers. Although many scholars believe that her works have some novel elements, a kind of work is accepted by readers with what kind of style, it has a substantial impact on what kind of style, so Sanmao is placed into the ranks of prose writers. For Sanmao, writing constitutes her unique life form. Sanmao's literary creation style has a very high literary research value, which is closely related to her innate personality, as well as her understanding of life itself and her unique literary interpretation skills. To be precise, Sanmao does not have the serious creative mission of a pure literary writer, nor will it deliberately pursue the social effectiveness of her works. For her, innovation is neither the great cause of the country, nor the masterpiece of the past dynasties. This article explores Sanmao's literary creation style through the three writing characteristics of writing freely, “depending on benevolence, swim in art” and integration of “Inovel” creation skills.

Index Terms—Sanmao, creative style, freely writing, depending on benevolence, swim in art, I-novel.
