||The reasons of doing this research: In a fast-pacing era of various poetic styles, classical poetry is apparently not only being shackled but also degrading gradually. The reason why I incite Mr. Chang as my study target is because he not only dedicated himself in the field of classical poetry in his lifetime but also spanned across all ages and various poetic fields with his expertise. In Mr. Chang’s lifetime, year 1991 definitely serves as the watershed of his life. In 1991, a sudden stoke landed Mr. Chang sitting on wheelchair for the rest of his life. From then on, he focused on the heritage and legacy of classical poetry, enriching different aspects of classical poetry to create a brand-new face of modern classical poetry.
I incite Mr. Chang’s related sources and pieces of his works to discuss motivation, purpose, and method respectively as the main content of my dissection.
Citing 1991 as the watershed year, I make a comparison of Mr. Chang’s poetic values on before and after the disease. This chapter can be divided into two parts: Mr. Chang’s poetic values, thoughts and methods in early life and those in later life.
Third Chapter :
In fact, the introduction of news phrases into poetry is not invented by Mr. Chang. During the late Qing dynasty, contemporary poets like Liang Qichao and Huang Zunxian had introduced such concept in a poetry revolution. Mr. Chang considered the classical poetry shouldn’t be bugged by old-fashion and fossilized forms or system. Contrarily, the classical poetry should be enlightened by the modern thoughts, appearing with Ji Da creation, and be further discussed the adequacy of the classical poetry after the introduction of new phrases.
Fourth Chapter :
After digging in Mr. Chang’s thoughts on poetic scenarios, I’ll be talking about the importance of scenarios in classical poetry with two parts: creation and appreciation. Then, I’ll mention the abilities that readers should be equipped with and further analyze the Trinity: epiphany world, poetic world, mind world to strengthen connection between readers and authors. With the concept of Trinity, I’ll explore Mr. Chang’s poetic scenario in his early and late life.
Fifth Chapter :
With all of the contents above, we get to know Mr. Chang’s full-hearted dedication in the field of classical poetry during his lifetime. With the 1991, year of watershed of early and later period, we get to realize the importance of classical poetry’s existence and legacy. Facing the challenges and difficulties of classical poetry, Mr. Chang managed to replace the fossilized system with new poetic style, and help readers establish the basis of analyzing a classical poetry with the importance of Trinity.
