ABSTRACT

Imagination related to water in Yu Guangzhong’s (1928- ) poetry is dazzlingly brilliant. This article attempts to demonstrate Bachelard’s mutual duality poetics by citing Yu’s verses. The theme of a clear stream of water runs throughout the article, analysing the imagination related to water in Yu’s poetry. The four sections- the imagination of flowing water and death, the imagination of black water and death, the imagination of a swan, and the imagination of water, life force and nurture- analyse the relationship between matter and water in the manner of death, drowning, rebirth and nurture. Through water, eternal remembrance is expressed, and through a droplet, essential life is revealed. It is hoped that this discussion will inspire an alternative reading of Yu’s poems.
