Moral Concerns in the Reception of Roman Poetry in China

Yongyi Li (Chongqinq University)
Friday, November 30, 2012 - 3:30pm
216 Denny Hall

In this talk Professor Li will trace how Confucian doctrine on poetry has shaped the Chinese way of reading poetry, which in turn affects the reception of certain aspects of Roman Poetry in China, and how modern China's exposure to Western poetry serves as a salutary counterbalance.

Yongyi Li, a Professor in the Department of English at Chongqinq University (China), is a Fulbright Scholar in residence at the UW Department of Classics for the 2012-13 academic year.  His Fulbright project is on 'Catullus and 20th Century American Poetry'.  For more information on Professor Li, click here.
