|| Historically, the opium war was an epoch-making point in Chinese modern history. During and after the opium war, China had been under fundamentally changed politically, economically, socially, militarily even in thoughts. Having seriously suffered from foreign country’s unequal treatments such as territory integrity and nation sovereignty, the Ging dynasty power was deadly and quickly falling.
Because of the British global mercantilism expansion and the culture difference between two countries, the opium war had been broken out after all. The huge gap between both sides in technology and political system, war results were that China had to be accepted the defeated fact, however, the British government also to be recognized as traffickers to Chinese.
By exploring and analyzing from literature points, the thesis is divided into five chapters. Chapter one, it is the introduction to the thesis in research motivation, scope and approach. From Chapter two to four, I will explore and analyze those poets in political, economical and military reflection during that period of time. My conclusion, chapter five, all opium poem styles and characteristics will be discussed and eight points conclusions made. In addition to that, there are three relative items can be for further research.
While reading those poetic works, we are able to indicate that not only Chinese history had been changed but also her political and social system transformed. In retrospect, the Chinese feeling of British aggression and suffering defeat combined to become the Chinese patriotism. However, we are leading a happy life now. With my thesis benefit, I earnestly hope that people will learn something more from the lessons.
