This investigation takes Chuang Song-lin, a folklore writer, as an example to discuss the cultural practice and importance of Taiwan proletariat Esperanto movement in the 1930s. In the 1930s, Taiwan’s political movements and social movements were confronted with an unprecedented frustration. Many intellectuals turned to literary or cultural movements, and the collection of folk literature was one of the symbols of this “ changing direction”(Tenk?) ”. Chuang Song-lin devoted himself to the folk literature movement after 1935. The Taiwanese fairy tale written in Esperanto "La Malsa?a Tigro" published in 1934 is the first folk literary work of Chuang Song-lin, and it is also regarded as a culture-oriented practice. With his participation in the Esperanto movement from 1931 to 1935, he was considered a local left-wing youth in the darkest era, a proletariat Esperanto movement pioneer, speaking to Japan as well as the world about Taiwan’s status quo and culture through the international, critical and influential Esperanto movement.
