    Literary Day in Taiwan - May 4

    Literary Day is a Chinese holiday celebrated annually in Taiwan on May 4. It commemorates the May Fourth Movement that emerged in the late 1910s.

    The May Fourth Movement was an anti-imperialist, political, and cultural movement that emerged in the late 1910s. It grew out of student demonstrations that took place in the city of Beijing on May 4th, 1919. The protesters objected to weak response of the Chinese government to the Treaty of Versailles. Protests spread throughout the country and lead to the upsurge of Chinese nationalism.

    The May Fourth Movement is closely tied with the New Culture Movement. This movement emerged in the mid 1910s due to the disillusionment with traditional Chinese culture. Its members called for creation of the new western-oriented culture. The May 4th demonstrations marked a shift from cultural activities to political mobilization.
