Abstract

In the Orientalist discourse, the Orient was backward and silent and was deprived of right to have their voice heard. However, in The Hundred Secret Senses, the author Amy Tan, the famous contemporary Chinese American writer, deconstructed Orientalist discourse by using some narrative strategies: talk-story and double first-person limited point of view.
