About the event

Introduction to Classical Chinese Poetry

Classical Chinese poetry flourished during the Tang period (7th - 10th century), but its influence was so great that it influenced many poets after the Tang, leading to a long tradition of beautiful verse. Universal characteristics of poetry such as rhyme and meter are also present in Chinese classical poetry, as are themes that inspired Western poets. Yet there are also typical Chinese elements that have to do with properties of the classical Chinese language and the influence of philosophy and religion, especially Chinese Buddhism and Taoism. Learn about the world of Chinese poetry and listen to Prof. Vercammen's translations of intriguing Chinese poems.
