This paper explores how Gotô Daji (後藤大治), a Japanese poet who lived in Taiwan, played a critical role in the establishment of free verse in Japanese in 1920s Taiwan. In the 1920s, numerous free verse poems in Japanese appeared in Taiwan, and poetry journals, poetry clubs, and poetry collections followed. However, previous research about those texts and poets of this period has been limited. This paper examines the background of the establishment of free verse in Japanese in Taiwan during this period through a literature survey across Japan and Taiwan. First of all, this paper explains why Taiwan entered into the field of Japanese poetry through the concern for local poetry by a Japanese poetry organization, Siwakai (詩話会), and its magazine Japanese Poet (日本詩人). Secondly, this paper examines the process by how Gotô Daiji joined in Japanese Poet through his literary trajectory in Taiwan and Japan, and probes how he inherited the idea of Japanese Poet that poetry would carry forward local poetry, and let the free verse spread in Taiwan. Finally, through actual poems, this paper discusses how Gotô Daiji used unique Taiwanese subjects and language to complete the free verse poems with Taiwanese local colors.
