An Analysis on Emotional Expression Poetry by Women in the Qing Dynasty (Ii)

Project Details


The poetry by women in the Qing Dynasty passed down the tradition of “Shi Yan Zhi” to initiate thediscourses of subjective consciousness. Many poems titled “Memory Recalling,” “Emotional Expression,”and “Self-expression” used methods, such as self-presence, self-revelation, and self-identity, to reflect ideasand ambitions, thinking of self-existence, and review and pursuit of life, as well as reflect the individualsubjectivity of women in the Qing Dynasty.This project is the extension of the MOST-subsidized project “An Analysis on Emotional Expressionby Women in the Qing Dynasty” (105-2410-H-008-061), and intends to focus on the investigation on poemsof self-narrative of birthday by women. Female poets consciously reflected the review on personal lifehistory through the self-reflection and reflection on birthday. The poems of self-narrative of birthday bywomen in the Qing Dynasty usually not only include one poem, but multiple poems or serial poems instead.Women’s inward self-review was reflected from different perspectives.

Such poems are rare andvaluable first-hand records of women in the Qing Dynasty in historical data of biography.
