This paper examines how "Rose, Rose, I Love You" by Wang Chang Ho is the subversion of the delicate language of the flowers of Western romance and looks at how the subversive use of language, in general, is the language of prostitution and rapacious pimps. It explores how the story is actually a satirical tale of a community's inability to become completely cognizant of the true meaning of such metaphorical constructions of the English language.

From the Paper:

"Sexuality is another means of course that individuals may make common connections between one another in a physical and also in a cultural fashion. However, the novel begins with a deflation of such highfalutin attitudes towards sexual discourse as well as linguistic discourse. The novel begins in the world of the main protagonist whom may be said to represent "language" in the novel, and also the way that Americans and the English language in general are often perceived in Asia. In the persona of the overfed, economically rapacious secondary school English teacher, English becomes personified as an intrusion upon local culture, rather than a positive influence."
