Son Jiyon’s “Contemplating Post-War Okinawan Literature:Gender, Ethnicity, and National Identity” criticizes the East Asian framework for understanding, and delves deeply into the intersection of postwar conditions and the Cold War in relation to Okinawa, through an analysis of various texts. As the author suggests, the situation of Okinawa is a microcosm of wider problems that are prevalent in the consciousness of East Asia as a whole, and which therefore can be understood at a fundamental level by Koreans, because they overlap with the contradictions thrown up by war and division in South Korea.
Keywords: Okinawan Literature, Oshiro Tatsuhiro, East Asian Writers
