ABSTRACT

Although Yu Kwang-chung writes his poems in vernacular Chinese, one sees and feels a touch of the Chinese classics throughout his canon. Despite the clear absence of classical metrics and poetics, a sense of rhyme and rhythm is built into his poetry via a subtle use of half quotes and allusions, articulating powerful sentiments that conjure up classical themes of past poets. This paper also address two main issues that haunt practitioners of modern Chinese poetry but that do not seem to cast a shadow on Yu Kwang-chung’s performance:the disappearance of metrics and the unlimited expansion of themes.
