Lifetime award for Chinese poet at British cultural festival
    2017-August-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINESE poet Jidi Majia was awarded Lifetime Achievement award at the third Cambridge Xu Zhimo Poetry Art Festival, which opened last week at Cambridge University’s King’s College.

The organizing committee praised Majia as one of the most eminent contemporary poets in China.

Highlighting the role of poetry in communication, Majia said in his acceptance speech that “it is gratifying to note that when many confrontations or potential confrontations occur, poetry miraculously becomes the most secretive way for communication among human spirits and mind.”

“In that space, Eastern poets, Western poets, Jewish poets and Muslim poets can find the joy and resonance the human spiritual and ideal world created by poetry.”

The festival will see about 200 poets, writers, calligraphers and scholars from all over the world gather to read poems, exchange ideas, and hold seminars and exhibitions.

The festival began in 2008 to honor renowned Chinese poet Xu Zhimo, who wrote “Saying Goodbye to Cambridge Again” and is an alumni of King’s College.

The institution placed a stone inscribed with Xu’s best-known poem under trees on the bank of the River Cam in tribute to his contribution to Sino-British cultural exchanges.

After years’ development, the festival has become one of the largest and most influential Sino-British cultural exchange activities in the United Kingdom. (Xinhua)
