Abstract

The creative work of modern Taiwanese writer Ho Dinsheng is considered for the first time in the Ukrainian literary studies. The analysis is focused on the peculiarities of the intertextual semantics of transculturation in the essay collection "The Ugly Chinaman and the Crisis of Chinese Culture". The transcultural perspective is embodied as the project, akin to the tendencies of "culture criticism". The accusatory tone, the lashing portrayal of iconic stamps, resulted from simplifying projection of traditional culture into mass discourse, is combined with multiple allusion, reminiscence and quotation techniques, thus the complicated experiment of rereading and deconstructing artistic and philosophical tradition of China in the global perspective is carried out. Within broad context of global literature, the experiment features the reassessment of genre peculiarities of philosophical essay, lecture essay, explicit cultural pragmatism, emotional positivism akin to late Romanticism and modern projects, mildly developing the poetics of postmodernism.
