NCKU Press Center
[Tainan, Taiwan, July 9, 2013]
Song Zelai (宋澤萊), the winner of the 17th National Award for Arts, is currently studying at the Department of Taiwanese Literature, College of Liberal Arts, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), southern Taiwan, and aspires to do doctorial research finishing his grand literary work titled “Taiwan Literature Over 300 Years”(台灣文學三百年) at NCKU.

Song who is a prominent Taiwanese novelist and poet claimed that the academic excellence achieved by NCKU Department of Taiwanese Literature, and its relatively strong domestic routes in research, brings him to the department for advanced study.

The faculty and students are thrilled when learning the good news and congratulate Song as soon as the announcement has launched by National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF), June 24.

The National Award for the Arts established by NCAF in 1997 is granted to prominent artists in the fields of literature, visual arts, music, dance, theater, architecture and film. Within the art world of Taiwan, the award has been widely acknowledged as the highest honor bestowed upon artists.

Song’s work is rich in content and varied in forms with forward-looking statements. He has been continuously writing for nearly forty years and his writing is across genres, innovative, eclectic, and with a strong touch of social and humanistic care, according to NCAF.

The most significant meaning of winning the award, according to Song, would be more discussions triggered including whether he is worthwhile, and the possible meanings of his work.

Critical opinions either positive or negative are welcomed by Song who also noted that he would like more people to read his books.
