Neruda’s Love Poems in Chinese
“Neruda’s Love Poems in Chineseis the first sequel of my “Learning Chinese Language and World Poetry Series”, which teaches Chinese language through learning the expertlytranslated poems of the most acclaimed poets in the world, as poetry is the most beautiful use of language in any world language, and translation often highlights the distinguished feature of eachlanguage. The Nobel Prize winner, Chilean poetPablo Neruda, is venerated as “the greatest poet of 20th century in any language” by Gacia Marquez, anotherhighly influential Nobel Prize Winner in Literature from Columbia. As the Nobel PrizeAward Committee claims, “under Neruda’s pen, a whole continent was brought to life.” In his Whitman-likeat the same time, strangely, Rilke-like, Pantheist love poem collection, “Twenty Love Songs and the Song of Despair”, from which the poems of this course draw on, one can feel strongly that there is a fecundity so deep that it approaches sadness, a propinquity so large that is similar to distance, a life so rich that only death can accommodate. Ultimately, death and loss is not the opposite side of life, but the hidden side of a global being. In most poems in this course, the ambiance of thepoem is stormy night with thunder and lightening, externalizing the poets inner turmoil: his passion, combat and trial of beliefhis cross. But the woman image in these poemsseems to merge with a higher existence above his mortal strife. Among scenes of destruction and ruins, among the cyclone and uprooted trees, she is an image of fertile nature unaffected by the ruin-she is the corn tassel, the cloudless sky, sparkling leaves, at the same time one of higher spiritualitythe broken stars imaged in the water, the lightning, the fiery white lotus and the question of smoke. She crosses the scene of ruin without stop, she grows out of the roots of death and destruction and rise above it. She fills everything, far and beyond, near and inside, so that she almost becomes divinity itself, the sacred muse of the poets creation. Each poem is taught in 2-3 lectures, depending on the length of the poem: the first one or two lectures arethe text practice (with Chinese character, pinyin and English translation text and a page of poetry comment at the end of the lecture)and line-by-line poetry analysisof the poem, in which I will teach you the language as much as explain to you the poetic interpretation of the symbolicmeaning of the poems; the third lecture isthe musical recitation of the poem, in whichYou can follow my reading of the poem againstintoxicating musical background. Through learning this course, you will find your Chinese language skillgreatly enhanced with beautiful Chinese vocabularies and expressionsamassed in all realms of human emotional experience and in the great Nature, at the same time getting to appreciate and understand the immortal beauty of thelove poetry of the world’s greatest poet.”
