Lin Heng-tai, a laureate of the 8th National Awards for Art, was a member of Modernism (poetry society) and a founding member of the Li (Bamboo Hat) Poetry Society, in which he served as its first editor-in-chief. He is both a poet and poetry critic. Lin hails from the generation that lived through Taiwan's linguistic watershed in the 1940s when Japanese, the language of colonial-era Taiwan, was jettisoned and replaced with Mandarin Chinese after the island's repatriation to China after the Second World War.
