"In December we explore 'What makes us Human?' Join our talk to discover the beauty of emotions expressed through Chinese poetry.
About this event
Poetry has always been a linguistic expression of human emotions and thoughts. Such emotions and thoughts as a result make us human. So how about ancient Chinese poetry? How does such an art form demonstrate the way ancient Chinese express love, hope and wisdom in life? In this talk, we aim to introduce basic forms of Chinese ancient poetry. More importantly, let’s explore how ancient Chinese express emotion and thoughts via selected poems. We will also explain how Chinese ancient poetry continues to shape and guild modern ways of life.
