From Lu Xun, Nie Gannu to the "Lizi" Style: Modern and Contemporary Development of Classical Chinese Poetry



My research focuses on the modern development of classical Chinese poetry and proposes that its continual practice has shown spontaneous modernity arisen from the poets' "unconscious to conscious" engagement of the aesthetic and rhetoric of this traditional poetic genre to respond to the modern social and political developments.
