Abstract: Liang Qichao’s trip to Taiwan on the eve of the revolution of 1911 had a great impact on the development of Tai-wan. The exchange in poems was an important medium for the communication between him and the Taiwan scholar-bureaucrats and one of their intersections was the feelings of Yimin ( adherents of a former dynasty) . Taiwan gentry expressed their loyalty to the motherland and affection for the homeland by using the traditional classical allusions and rhyme. On the other hand, their colonial context had made them face different dynasty change experience, which had enabled their feelings and way of expres-sion to enrich the form and connotation of the traditional Yiming discourse. In the colonial rule, the colonial discourse was re-garded as a cultural means for them to resist the colonial rule. The interaction, understanding and sympathy they had in poems between Taiwan gentry and Liang Qichao produced some kind of“inter-subjectivity” experience, which provides reference and prospects for the current exchanges between Taiwan and the mainland.
