    Abstract

    Sterk translates the literary work "The bear whispers to me" 《熊兒悄聲對我說》, written by Chang Ying-tai (張瀛太). In the novel, a reclusive young boy stumbles upon his father’s diary. Filled with drawings, photos and anecdotes, the diary reveals an alpine world that his father once inhabited as a child: where tribes were fashioned by tree spirits; animals could be spoken to; fleas danced; and the moon and stars were guiding lights in darkling forests. His father’s world was alive with birdsong and hidden spirits, serene yet fleeting—but it all changed when he befriended two bears.
