‘Text to pass the ancient, learning to leave the memory.’ On the afternoon of November 29th, Honors College held a theme salon of ‘reading and writing novels’ in order to improve the students' literary appreciation ability in the 415 Hongsheng Reading Square of Xuehai building. Professor Lu Yang, the master instructor at the College of Arts, was invited to host this salon.
After professor Lu conducted a simple warm-up session, everyone discussed their own recent problems and ideas. A student called Liu Yansong began his talk from the ‘Hong Kong International Poetry Night’ activity in Pioneer Bookstore. He explained his understanding of the phrase ‘there is always some ancient hostility between life and great works’ in Requiem. He thought there are many trivial and repetitive parts in life. There was a great gap and conflict between these contents and the great works, and such a boring ingredient would not appear in good works. Professor Lu Yang also made his own comments on these words. He thought there is a great distance between life and creation. Writing required a great deal of energy from the writer, and the distance was objective, enabling the writer to constantly think and reflect on life. After that Wang Rui put forward as a young generation, when she tried to write, she always worried about the classic repetition and the lack of creativity. Yu Wangjia said that as long as it was a literary creation, there must be the main component of the participation, and personal talent was related. Regardless of whether similarities with past works, young people's creative attempts will not lack vitality and new ideas. The creative process is an excellent exercise for students themselves.
After the speech, Professor Lu Yang combined the students 'speeches with the monologue without the punctuation in Joyce's Ulysses’ as an example to show that excellent literary works can bring shock to this heart that cannot be erased. He combined with his own personal experience to tell the students that the masses should not blindly claim the work, and give the author too much pressure. He thought that excellent work should be formed by the author of the natural form. In the salon everyone continued to explore and learn from each other, the venue was very warm atmosphere.
This activity emphasized the communication and exchange among students. Students shared their views actively on the literature, it exercised their thinking, logic and language skills in thinking and speaking, as well as enhancing their mutual understanding and friendship. This salon also provided favorable conditions for our Honors College to further academic exchange activities.
