It will be nice idea if we exchange our knowlodge about our traditional literature ..Like famous writers..good books and novels..etc.. It will help us know more about different cultures and also imprving our languages to they who are learning english .
There is one thing interesting I want to share with you. There is a considerable amount of literature out of my country in some other libraries or museum overseas where you can find more amazing information from different angles to approach my country. I would prefer to approach my country culture by some other stances which would be quite interesting.
Thank you Allen..I’d like to know more about ُEast Asia litearture generally and Taiwan specially..Of course the literature of the different cultures is available in the libraries or musseums ... but you said there is cosiderable amount ... How can we find a beginning to recognize your culture from all in the libraries ... that the role of the discussion to us to give short notes about our literature to manage us how we start ...And to nominate for us the books and the writers you find them amusing and imprtant.
For me ... Arabic literature is full of alot of good writers and good amusing books ..like " One thousand and One nights"..It talk about (Shahr Zad ) the new queen who was about to be killed by the king but she stopped him by telling a stories ... ( Aladdin's Wonderful Lamp ),(Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves) and more.I think you will find it is translated in English .
Also there is " Nagieb Mahfouz" (Nobel prize 1988) who wrote about the life Gebelawi and the arab society after world war..From his books (palace walk) (God’s world) and (the thieve and the dogs) ..also there are many writers like (Alaa Al Aswany) (Tawfik El Hakim) and more ..
