||her life, namely pre-studying abroad, post-studying abroad, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, and the time she lived in Taiwan, were discussed in Section 2. I concluded the chapter in Section 3.
In the third chapter, The Characteristics of Li Man-Kuei’s Anti-Communist Plays, I looked into the plots of the plays, examining the plays’ main ideas in Section 1. I explored the plays’ language features, which reflected the social-political environment and special linguistic features in that time in Section 2, and then analyzed in Section 3 the characterizations of the plays, which provided an overview of the social context and social events of the age. Section 4 was devoted to the discussion of the historical events and social contexts, including the changes of anti-communist sentiments, represented in the plays, sorted by common themes of the plays. The performance and audience acceptance of the plays were discussed in Section 5, and conclusion of the chapter was provided in Section 6.
In the fourth chapter, The Value and Influence of Li Man-Kuei’s Plays, I discussed Taiwan’s historical development manifested in the plays in Section 1, and argued that Li’s works played an important role in enriching the island’s theatrical works in Section 2. I described the “Little Theatre” movement of Taiwan, and the movement’s implication to Taiwan’s theatre in Section 3, and elaborated the strength of criticism in Li’s and other Taiwanese playwrights’ works in Section 4. The chapter was concluded in Section 5.
In the fifth chapter, Conclusion, I summarized the study, and provided more in-depth and completed analyses, along with a review of the value and influence of Li’s anti-communist plays.
