China is a Poet Kingdom. Classical Poetry and Modern Chinese Poetry comprise the Chinese world of poetry. With the extremely high regard that had been bestowed in this kind of writing, our poets left a remarkable legacy in this field of literature. Essentially, poetry is considered as the earliest form of literature, which originated from old folk songs. It is believed to have existed even before the Chinese language was written and recorded. Rhyme is the main focal point of the classical writing, expressing emotions, such as sorrows and joys in the daily life, or special festivities. Since the last dynasty, Qing, poetry did not disappear at all. Mao Zedong became the well-known practitioner of the Classical poetry in the 20th century. This is also the period when the modern poetry came to light. In the year around 1912, experimental styles of poetry writing known as 鈥渇ree verses鈥, together with the modern style 鈥渂aihua鈥, became the tone of the modern writings.

 

In today鈥檚 Internet age, poetry continues to flourish as a social form. It means that due to several factors of influence like culture, media and politics, poetry changed its shape and definition depending on who does the writing. Modern poets, who have the access to internet, don鈥檛 need to publish their works in journals or books, but express their 鈥減oetic talent鈥 in forms of blogs or social platforms as a form of participation. So, poetry still exists at this modern time.

 


Novel

After the great revolutionary storms, modern literature has been given birth and flourished as times go by. In the case of Fictional Writing, our Six Classis Novels served as a contribution to the world in the longest and the oldest novels鈥 list. These great masterpieces started around 14th century up to the 18th century. In 2012, writer Mo Yan, won the Noble Prize in Literature for his novel entitled Red Sorghum. His work was a great hit for the Western people due to his style of writing that put folk tales, history and contemporary topics all in a mix. In one of his speeches, he mentioned that literature can overcome the barriers that separate countries and nations. In fact, most of the best modern Chinese novels were written in English, such as The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu, The Vagrants by Yiyun Li, and Frontier by Can Xue, to name a few. In 2018, Yu Hua鈥檚 To Live, came as Number 1 for China鈥檚 Overall Fiction list. It is a bestseller not only here, but even outside of the country. After this work had been endorsed by the 18 year old celebrity, Yi YanQianXi, readers raved about this novel. Yu Hua鈥檚 contribution to literature has been marked by his experiences during the Cultural Revolution.

Drama

Known as a nation with history-conscious culture, drama originated from the theatrical traditions that existed in the early time. In the era of Kin and Yuen dynasties, there were about six hundreds of plays that were recorded and have been celebrated and enjoyed by the people. Highlights of its feature are the verbal decoration and poetical ornament of its script. Although the development of plot is yet to be improved during those early times, these plays were commonly portrayed with scenes like violence, suffering, death or starvation. Commonly, the actor would sing a song before his life will be ended. At the end of the play, the viewers would still be left with an amazing happy ending.

 

As in the case of modern dramas, original pieces of Chinese writers were used to give delight to the modern audience. Liu Zhenyun wrote Chicken Feathers Everywhere and Working Unit, which were adapted as a popular TV drama series in 1994. The Huaju or a spoken play, started to develop in Shanghai in the early part of this century. Young playwrights adapted an even more realistic portrayal; focusing on the differences of the life before and after. However, due to the widespread love for other cultures, our dramas have to compete with pop music concerts, several international and local variety of television shows. Nevertheless, we still have one of the most booming TV drama industries in the world! The top-scoring TV dramas as of last year are Lost in 1949 (鑴辫韩), Summer鈥檚 Desire (娉℃搏涔嬪), and The Way We Were (褰掑幓鏉).
