Behind the Scenes of the Exiled

website ︎︎︎
Exile is the situation of a person who is forced to leave their own country, or a period of voluntary absence from one’s country or home. “Behind the Scenes of the Exiled” is an experimental zine that looks into writers who were driven into exile, forced to leave their native land, but have found a way to express themselves about their situation. I chose these writers because they all have a different story as to the reason for their exile and what might've been going on in their era.
I’d like to analyze the writing of these specific writers and find out what was happening in their world at the time. Were there hidden meanings behind their writings? What did their writings depict about their emotions while in exile? Taking a step back to the early 20th century, what did these great writers leave behind in the literary world?
