1938-1945年,郁達夫赴南洋(現在的東南亞)從事文化工作和抗日宣傳,為當地的文學創作和文化發展貢獻良多,並捲入當地文壇的文藝論爭。1945年郁達夫失蹤後,他被馬來西亞作家寫入文學作品,成為傳記、小說、詩歌等各類作品中的文學形象。在馬華作家黃錦樹的小說中,郁達夫成為他思考馬華文學主體性的一個重要載體和象徵——黃錦樹對郁達夫的形象塑造,展現出馬華文學與中國文學的複雜關係。

From 1938 to 1945, Yu Dafu was engaged in cultural efforts and anti-Japanese propaganda in the Nanyang (Southeast Asia nowadays) where he made a notable contribution to the local literature and cultural development, and fell into the controversies of local literary circles. After disappearing in 1945, Yu became a literary image featuring in an array of genres of Sinophone Malaysian literature. The contemporary Sinophone Malaysian writer Ng Kim Chew renders Yu in his fiction, The Disappearance of M, Death in the South, as a significant embodiment and symbol for pondering the subjectivity of Sinophone Malaysian literature. Ng’s construction of the images of Yu demonstrates the complicated relationship between Sinophone Malaysian literature and Chinese literature.
