The Lyrical in Yan’an: The Night Song by He Qifang Revisited
Lecturer：Jiang Tao (Peking University)
Venue：Conference room, Inside-Out Art Museum
During his time in Yan’an, He Qifang created The Night Song. While expanding the lyrical boundary of modern Chinese poetry, its bright, vibrant style also indicates the inauguration or reconfiguration of certain innate feelings in the brand-new interpersonal and ethical relations in Yan’an. However, is the lyrical needed in Yan’an? Where lies the boundary of such lyrical creations, and how does it bear upon the reformation of the intellectuals? This talk seeks to investigate into these questions.
