Talk:Dương Thu Hương

Calling Duong Thu Huong "the most popular writer in Vietnam" is not an objective assessment.

Everything from "In her story “The Story of an Actress,” ..." to the reference section is Not NPOV. LeeNapier 16:52, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

The claim "The center of Vietnamese literature is in southern California" is also not an objective assessment.

Agree - this is a rather fatuous statement that violates NPOV. I can imagine Hương rolling her eyes at the idea of Orange County being the equivalent of Iona Abbey for Vietnamese literature. 12:00, 15 November 2006 (UTC)


The section "Criticism" is biased

"Dương has been outspoken about many issues in Vietnam. However, a few believe that the vituperative and combative tone of her writings is more personal than intellectual. Dương believes that the quest of any intellectual in Vietnam is to attack the current regime and she therefore condemns all neutral voices. She believes that if a writer does not attack the government unequivocally, he cannot count as an intellectual, "no matter how many liters of oil he spends on reading each month." This extreme point of view is deemed by these critics as unhelpful, especially when Dương issues personal attacks on even forward thinking intellectuals whose voice she deems not completely dissenting. This, together with her often irreverent and personal attacks on figures of Vietnamese history who are well respected by the people such as Ho Chi Minh, lead many to believe that Dương writes more for a foreign audience than for Vietnamese. These critics argue that her intellectual motive is therefore questionable."

As it lacks references it violates NPOV and should be removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ToDo Road (talkcontribs) 08:59, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Agree. Hopefully it can be referenced, balanced and replaced at some point. -- Khazar (talk) 21:47, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
It was removed at some point. Please use {{POV-section}} for sections or {{POV-statement}} for sentences, then detail issues here. This will help address them in a timely manner. - RoyBoy 23:53, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
