On September 27, in order to celebrate the 69th anniversary of the founding of the P.R.C and the 60th anniversary of the founding of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, a public lecture on traditional poetry - "National Day · The Beauty of Poetry" was held at "Green City Stage" of Nanning Library.
The guest speaker of this lecture was Mr. Huang Sheng, member of Chinese Poetry Society (CPS) and president of Nanning Municipal Poetry Society. In his opinion, the artistic beauty of Chinese classical poems includes beauty in form and beauty in content. In his point of view, the beauty in form lies in three aspects: first, orderly harmony; second, varied mobility; and third, resonated rhymes. Through appreciating and analyzing “Autumn View in Chang'an” by Zhao Gu, “Gathering Mulberry Leaves” by Ouyang Xiu, “Song of the Conscripts” by Du Fu and “Perilous Journey to the Land of Shu” by Li Bai, Mr. Huang shared his views on the beauty in form of these poems with poetry lovers present. Over a hundred of poetry lovers present were absorbed into the excellent lecture. This public lecture helped the audience to understand, appreciate, create and remark on poems from the perspective of aesthetics and discover the secrets of the beauty of poetry and boosted the exchanges among poetry lovers.
