ABSTRACT

Modern Chinese literature has a long tradition of naming Chinese writers and poets after the Western ones. For example, in the 1920s, Lin Huiyin becomes China’s Katherine Mansfield and in the 2000s, Lomen and Rongzi China’s Browning couple. A detailed study of the relationship among these poets (or writers) in terms of their poetics will demonstrate that these labeling are unfair, misnamed and mismatched. The reason(s) behind these misnamed may be numerous. One of them may be caused by the misunderstandings involved during the course of cultural exchanges and receptions. This paper argues that this particular tradition should be broken. To do this, a comparison between the poetics of the Lomen’s couple and the Browning’s couple will be made and the interpretations will help exhibit that the practice of labeling is problematic.
