一代詩魂徐志摩研討會

 

中國二十世紀偉大詩人散文家徐志摩 (1897-1931) 為浙江海寧人﹐曾就學于北京大學、美國哥倫比亞大學、英國劍橋大學等校。歷任北京大學、東吳大學 及中央大學教授。為著名文學組織新月社"發起人﹐與胡適、梁實秋、聞一多等合創《新月雜誌》。著有詩集多種﹐以及散文集《落葉》、《秋》、《巴黎的鱗爪》等。

 

徐志摩為二十年代以白話文寫作最重要的先鋒詩人﹐才情橫溢。對中國古典文學造詣精湛﹐又深受英美文學浪漫主義影響﹐故其作品兼具中西文學合璧之妙﹐用詞奇麗﹐文思既纏綿亦飛揚﹐結構深刻而文筆生動。在文學精神上可與英國十九世紀詩人拜倫與雪萊相媲美﹐是中國文學史上現代浪漫詩的開山鼻祖﹐建承先啟後之功。徐氏在感情方面亦多采多姿﹐加以不幸于三十四歲時墜機逝世﹐究其一生極富悲劇性。自三十年代初以來﹐七十餘年中不斷有人撰文評述其作品與生平。數年前更有電視劇人間四月天問世﹐轟動一時﹐將徐志摩生平與其文學造就再一次推向高潮。

 

紐約華美協進社人文學會有鑒于徐氏詩文與生平如此超絕傳奇﹐故訂于二零零三年九月二十七日週六﹐舉辦盛大徐志摩研討會。此一會議尚屬在美國首次有關徐志摩之學術會。屆時人文學會將敦請美國研究中國文學之著名詩人學者作專題演講﹐並邀請徐氏嫡系傳人蒞會參加。此外特請專業藝術家朗誦歌詠徐志摩作品﹐並且展出有關徐氏作品﹐手稿﹐生平之珍貴圖片與實物。此一研討會為華美人文學會二零零三年秋季第一項盛大活動﹐敬希對中國文學﹐文化有興趣人士踴躍參加。

A Symposium on Xu Zhimo, a Chinese Poet Extraordinaire

Date: Saturday, September 27, 2003; 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm.
Place: Hunter College, N510
Fee: $7/$5 (members)


One of the most distinguished poets of the 20th century China, Xu Zhimo, or Hsu Chi-muo, (1897-1931) was educated at Beijing University in China and at Columbia University in U.S. and Cambridge University in England. Equally at home writing in Chinese and in English, Xu was a literary herald in blending the best of the Chinese and the Anglo-American literatures. Xu Zhimo has remained a true legend for the high romanticism and lyricism as how they are reflected in his poetry and poetic essays, his Byronic air and his affairs of the heart, and his tragic death at the young age of 34. For the first time outside of China, the Learned (Renwen) Society of China Institute is presenting a 5-hour symposium on the life and works of Xu Zhimo, the tumultuous years of social and cultural changes in the 1920's in China -- years in which Xu emerged as a major literary force, and his impact on later poets and writers in general. Prominent scholars on Xu Zhimo and modern Chinese literature will be invited to speak at this rare literary event. Some of Xu Zhimo's descendants will be in attendance. The symposium will be entirely in Chinese.

Moderator: Ben Wang, Senior Lecturer at China Institute and Co-chair of the Learned (Renwen) Society

Symposium liaison: Yong Ho, Co-chair of the Learned ( Renwen)  Society (graduate of Zhimo's alma mater--Columbia U)

Speakers:

Xu Zhimo family member(s)

Ch'ou-yu Cheng, Poet-in-Residence, Yale University

Xudong Zhang, Professor of Chinese Literature, New York University (graduate of Zhimo's alma mater--Peking U)

Yao Xuewu, President of Peking University Pen Society (graduate of Zhimo's alma mater--Peking U)
