The China Post - - LOCAL -

Chi­nese writer Gao Xingjian (

), who won the No­bel Prize for Lit­er­a­ture in 2000, will talk about cul­tural self-ex­am­i­na­tion and his lit­er­ary in­spi­ra­tion dur­ing an April 22 speech at Na­tional Tai­wan Nor­mal Uni­ver­sity (NTNU), the uni­ver­sity said Mon­day.

This will be the fourth con­sec­u­tive year that Gao has trav­eled to Tai­wan to de­liver a speech at the uni­ver­sity, where the France­based writer has served as a chair pro­fes­sor since 2012.

In 2012, Gao re­leased a book of po­etry ti­tled “You Shen Yu Xuan Si” ( ) in Tai­wan. The fol­low­ing year, NTNU’s Grad­u­ate In­sti­tute of Per­form­ing Arts pro­duced a rock mu­si­cal adapted from Gao’s play “A Tale of Shan Hai Jing” ( ), which is based on an­cient Chi­nese mythol­ogy.
