Chinese Family Chants BSL207

US$19.95

This collection is perfect for those who want to know a modern Chinese writer who composes and chants classic metric poems. The artist is engaged in an art form that very few practice today. In addition to composing and chanting the poems, he actually uses calligraphy to write his own poems.
The collection includes traditional metric poetry and classic calligraphy by Yongjun Ruan. In China today, collections of calligraphy and poetry are abundant and easily found. What distinguishes this collection from all others is that the calligraphy pieces are all original poems composed by the author himself (except one piece of Small Case calligraphy).  Such work is rarely found in contemporary China, thus making this collection unique.
Chinese calligraphy is the artistic vehicle for classic Chinese characters. Not many calligraphy artists have enough courage to venture into classic characters. Thus, in addition to being unique, this collection has special academic significance. It offers a valuable reference to those who would like to expose themselves to Chinese classic characters.
 
想知道现代中国人还有吟旧诗(格律诗)、并用中国古文字书写自己诗作的吗?请看《墨吟集》。《墨吟集》是作者的一本詩集,也是作者的一本書法集。墨指翰墨,這里主要指中國書法的創作;吟指作者對中國傳統格律詩的創作。在當今中國書法集可謂汗牛充棟,然而,《墨吟集》的全部的書法作品均録自作者自己的詩作(除一件小楷作品以外),這在當代中國是屈指可數的。這是《墨吟集》的價值所在。此外,書法作品主要是以中國古文字爲載體,這就讓濫竽充數者不敢問津,突顯了《墨吟集》的學術份量;同時也為學習篆書的書法愛好者提供了參考的資料。
