This book focuses on the relationship between the Japanese colony of Dalian and Japanese literature in the 20th century. In the urban space of Dalian, the relationship between Japanese writers’ colonial experience and literary creation is revealed. The author discusses Japanese literature in Dalian by dividing it into two eras:the prewar-war period and the postwar one up until today. Dalian has become a city that is both exotic and modern at the same time, having undergone grandiose urban planning undertaken by the Soviet Union and redevelopment on the part of Japan. Meanwhile, behind such prosperity, the Chinese have lived a life of poverty and misery. Dalian, a modern city where prosperity and poverty are cheek by jowl, is an urban space in which Japanese writers created literature, and this book positions this Japanese work in the field of colonial literature.
