The Society Of Classical Poets Journal Ix Hardcover
The Society of Classical Poets is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to reviving traditional poetry. It typically publishes, online and in its annual journal, a variety of poetry that uses rhyme and meter. If the idea is to modernize, perhaps the place to start is with activities.
One of the fine examples of fu is Xi Kang’s Qin Fu, or “Poetical Essay in Praise of the Qin”. In this latest issue, the journal features the works of the top fifteen poets judged in the last competition held by the society.

Wang Wen-yen, professor of Chinese at Chengchih University, holds that there is nothing wrong with these competitions and notes that the whole idea behind the societies is to provide practice in writing poetry and to stir up enthusiasm for poetry. “Since ancient times, great works have rarely been created in the exam room, but rather have come out of the feelings imparted by one’s own experiences.

It was poetry that cleared a trail of a complex and unnecessary junction of smear ideas, thoughts that I had in mind. It brought light upon it, a shining glamorous light that can solely be perceived, understood, and obtained through poetry. Poetry connects … thoughts, images, feelings, people, places, things … poetry connects them all. An immediate path to becoming better people and being the change in the world. Creating a world less about tearing each other down and apart, and more about coming together.
