High Muck Muck : Playing Chinese, this is a very moving electronic literature piece. It is an interactive poem, it talks about the difficulties that Chinese immigrants encountered while leaving in Canada. The story starts with those words written in  Chinese and translated in English: ” Take a gamble and immigrate…lottery card” Then the reader moves the mouse on the word “enter” to start playing. It was emotional for me to go through this beautiful piece, being an immigrant myself and having experienced some of the same prejudices; whether it was by my own people or others. I can relate. The pictures, the poems, the music contributed in making the story real and keeping it alive.
