ABSTRACT

Why have Chinese leaders made speeches by quoting numerous poems and classics to express their meanings? What functions and roles does this unique Chinese diplomatic rhetoric called ‘Poetry diplomacy’ play? Starting from this critical awareness, this study aims to find out the implications of Xi’s ‘humanistic leadership’ era and Chinese ‘soft power’ by investigating ‘poetry diplomacy’ as diplomatic rhetoric and analyzing quotations from classics in the Xi’s speeches. For this purpose, this study summarizes who the Chinese are in historic and cultural context and looks into the directing point of China’s soft power policies. Then, the study examines cases of Chinese leaders’ poetry diplomacy and states Xi’s humanistic diplomacy through analysis on ‘Xi Jinping’s Quotations from Classics’ in detail.
