ABSTRACT

Nostalgia is three-dimensional, so says Yu Kwang-chung about nostalgia for home. In the historical and cultural context of three-dimensional nostalgia, poems with themes about history and nostalgic yearnings form the mainstream. They are also the staple and strengths of Chinese poets. Just as higher order and classical historical and nostalgic poems should be an organic merging of the poet’s traditional sentiments and modern consciousness, so distinguished poets and literary giants should also embody a perfect harmony between historical depth and open spirit. For Yu who is blessed with talent, erudition and knowledge, his poems with themes about history and nostalgic yearnings show three distinct characteristics:they are overflowing with emotive themes, lamenting and full of pathos and rich with embedded allusions.
