Abstract
Exile, a term that encompasses a variety of meanings, implies primarily an uprootal or a displacement towards something else: the departure from a point of familiarity towards the unknown. These days, in a world where individuals are increasingly mobile and métissés, this term no longer applies exclusively to the migratory experience. The feeling of otherness, longing for a lost past, and alienation lead to a sense of non-belonging in a state of in-betweenness. As a result, it comes as no surprise that exile is often at the centre of literary works where the act of writing becomes a means of reimagining this exilic experience. In the case of the works of Chinese writer, Ying Chen, the expression of exile moves progressively from a physical/geographical state to a psychological – or even – metaphorical, symbolic one. In this study, I will show the evolution of exile in Chen’s work through the lens of her changing writing aesthetic, which aims for abstraction.
